In the News, Apple aping FLOSS platforms, Ubuntu turning full circle, reflections on a terrific year for both the surveillance state and tech companies following the Snowden revelations, more SSL problems, and (almost) a mea culpa from Joe.

Paddy gave us his First Impressions of openmamba GNU/Linux, and Joe will be looking at Puppy Linux for the next show.

After your Feedback, we ruminated on The UNIX-Haters Handbook, then took at look at a couple of distros with a very different approach to package management.

In the News, a cryptocurrency story leads us to ponder whether Bitcoin is simply an establishment controlled scam, the poor man’s Steve Jobs wows the OpenStack Summit, Firefox pulls another stunt guaranteed to hæmorrhage support, and eBay treats its customers with as much respect as it does their personal data.

Joe gave us his First Impressions of the assembly-coded KolibriOS, and Paddy will be spending time with openmamba GNU/Linux for the next show.

Lots of interesting Feedback, with more of it being posted on our website rather than sent to us via email. Thanks for that guys – it really does help start some interesting conversations.

Ending our Canonical-heavy coverage as of late, we took a quick look at the latest LTS of three baby ‘buntus: Lubuntu, Kubuntu and Xubuntu. We also had a quick chat with Elizabeth Krumbach Joseph, web and marketing lead at the Xubuntu project. Lyz had some interesting things to say about that project, and also about the issue of women and minority group involvement in the tech industry. Thanks for talking with us, Lyz.

In the News, some more Canonical own goals, continuing Heartbleed fallout, (un?)welcome changes in browser land, a promising new Linux desktop, and a whole lot more.

As usual, we received a sackful of perceptive and thoughtful Feedback this show. As mentioned on the audio, keep it coming; but please consider using the commenting facility on our website rather than email, so that others can benefit from your thoughts in full. We only have time to read out short extracts on the show, so there’s a lot of value out there that the broader community is missing out on. Thanks!

We shelved some of our regular programming to bring you an in-depth interview with Campbell Barton of the Blender Foundation. Besides talking about Blender itself, we took the opportunity to discuss Campbell’s experiences of development within a large and complex software project – so there is plenty of meat here for everyone listening. Once again, a huge thank you to Campbell for making the time to speak with us.

Does a major commercial software package coming to Linux bode of better times ahead? This, and stories about Google, Facebook, Debian and Canonical, plus a bevy of updates on the fallout from Heartbleed, feature in the News this show.

Paddy was forced to exercise his rudimentary French in First Impressions, whilst Joe will be looking at a non-Linux OS next show; one which claims to run in just 8MB RAM.

As ever, thanks to everyone for making our Feedback section such an enjoyable and informative part of the show – keep it coming!

Ubuntu 14.04 has been released with the usual 5 years of long term support. Is it a good enough distro to keep you hooked that long, or so bad that Canonical may not survive to provide that support? Listen on to hear our take.

Finally, in Off the Beaten Path, a file manager that you’ve probably never heard of, but may well like.

News this show about Ubuntu, more systemd shenanigans, a win for Chromebooks and a possible one for Linux, and that little Heartbleed issue that you may have heard about.

Joe served up his First Impressions of Q4OS, and landed Paddy with the improbably capitalised NuTyX for the next show.

Lots of great feedback, including some listener thoughts about The UNIX-Haters Handbook, suitable distros to replace XP, audio encoding, and more. One comment set Paddy off thinking about why Linux has been successful, and arguably how the cause of that success is being eroded.

We took a long hard look at AntiX MX-14 “Symbiosis”, then kept our thinking caps on to consider “What Happened to the Vision in Open Source?” in our Over a Pint section.
