0:01:02 Behind the Headlines
0:33:47 Feedback
0:48:49 Semplice 7

When something many of us still think of as a presentation medium becomes a genuinely serious attack vector, you’ve got to ask whether maybe things have gone too far. And we kick off our look Behind the Headlines with a bunch of stories about how web technologies are increasingly proving a danger to our privacy and security. We also talk about Oracle, and a report that claims that commercial software is more secure than Open Source.

After your Feedback, Jesse does his level best to convince the team that Semplice 7 lives up to the standards set by its previous incarnation. On this, there was some disagreement…

With Android’s security woes making even the mainstream press, it’s hardly surprising that they featured in our news this show. But we also found time to bring you stories about Fedora and Ubuntu, FFmpeg, a couple of Kickstarter projects with very different outcomes, and a similarly mixed bag of news for Lenovo.

Ron Minnich has long been associated with Open Source firmware, and after the news (@36:25) we spoke to him about the coreboot project. In our interview we found out why Ron is so enthusiastic about Google’s Chromebooks, discovered his hopes for a new RISC ISA from Berkeley, and quizzed him on whether Purism can really deliver on their promise of a modern and truly FOSS mass-market laptop.

A mere seven days later, and we’re back. A couple of interesting hardware add-ons for the Pi kick off our news coverage, and we look behind some recent headlines about Google and Mozilla to see how the balance of power can so quickly change in the tech world.

After your feedback, Jesse gamely attempts to run Android-x86 as a desktop OS. Has it markedly improved in the year since we last span it up, or is it still little more than a curiosity, burdened with a user interface paradigm that simply makes no sense without touch input?

As the strapline reads, not all change is progress. But we’re hopeful that a shorter and more frequent Linux Luddites will be. Going forwards, we’ll be bringing you a weekly hour-long show that otherwise holds to the principles you’ve told us you value in what we do. So that means we’ll be keeping our breadth of news coverage from around the FOSS world intact, continuing to treat your feedback with the respect it deserves, and providing plenty of time to give our topics, and each other, space to breathe. We hope you’ll like the change, and find fitting your Luddite fix into busy lives just a little easier as a consequence.

After the news, this show we’ll be looking at some of the options available to the dual-booter for safely accessing your Linux data from within Windows. And we’ll be solving a conundrum facing Canonical, as we sit down over a pint and discuss what needs to be done to bring the Ubuntu Community back to full health.

Free Software and Open Hardware are increasingly being used within education across the globe. This show, a news item and two interviews with people working within the sector got us thinking about the apparent lack of emphasis being placed upon those freedoms whilst teaching computing to our children.

Venturing back to the Jurassic era, your Luddites took three tiling window managers for a spin and found that walking with dinosaurs can be a fun and productive experience. Plus, we’ve all the fortnight’s news, our first impressions of Mageia 5, and the usual thought-provoking mailbag of your feedback to chew over.
