Last fortnight was dominated by two releases: the new Raspberry Pi 2, and the first Ubuntu mobile. With one of our number having got his hands on both of these, we report back on the Cray-like performance of the Pi, and how the Ubuntu phone could finally be a challenger to the legendary Wasp T12. Or not.

In the news, we talked about the sad demise of CrunchBang, the UK’s headlong rush into a surveillance state befitting our humble status as Airstrip One, a mysterious disappearing anti-FSF campaign, and much more. And with a first impressions of the Pi and a deep-dive into Ubuntu Touch topping and tailing your feedback, that’s the show. We hope you enjoy it.

Neither the weather nor a slickly marketed new Linux vulnerability can hold the Luddites back; like the Beast of Redmond, which features heavily in the News this show, we just keep on coming.

Changing the pace, Joe and Jesse went Off the Beaten Path to bring us a couple of FOSS applications that they frequently find useful; but we soon got back on track with all your Feedback.

Yomping ended, we settled down Over a Pint to discuss the impact that social media has had upon how we see the world and our fellow human beings. It’s broadened our outlook… hasn’t it?

Linux. It’s now ubiquitous, and powering the devices we use everyday – and some we’d never contemplate owning. With the dying embers of CES 2015 being stamped out in the wider tech press, we also focus on the use of Linux away from our daily desktops and servers.

After a gadget-friendly news segment, we’ve a truly mixed bag of your feedback. And, having spoken about it for months, it was great to finally to get our hands on an official Firefox OS phone – but just how long did our initial enthusiasm last?

We report on the news of how a booming Android eco-system doesn’t translate into actual profits for many hardware manufacturers, and how recent major hacks may have just been part of a marketing scheme. Another story provides a timely reminder of why biometrics can be a poor authentication choice; and we bid a possible farewell to one distro, and a definite one to the Web’s first comprehensive index.

If you’ve ever wanted to see the notifications on your Android devices in real time on your desktop, then come off the beaten path with us, as we take a look at an app to scratch that itch.

After your feedback, we’re into the obligatory predictions for the year ahead. Whether you agree with our thoughts or not, we’d love to hear yours.

No lazy clips show or festive holiday break for us, as the full complement of Luddites – with Jesse recovered from his GNOME flu – cranked out another show; and we’ll be back doing the same in a fortnight’s time.

Quite a lot has been happening in the FOSS world over the last two weeks, so we could only scratch the surface. As usual, for more about the stories that we touched upon, check out the full show notes via the link below.

After the news, our first impressions segment made a surprise return with us casting an initial eye over the recent Fedora 21 Workstation release. And, following your feedback, we looked back at our predictions from last year, to see how off base they’d proven to be. Predictions, hopes, fears and aspirations for 2015 will be coming up next time, and we’d love to hear your thoughts before then as well.

For those enjoying a holiday at this time of year – have a great Christmas! And to one and all, thanks for your support during 2014, and we look forward to seeing you all again in two weeks for more Linux news, reviews, comment and generally being grumpy.
