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.

With several dubious funding campaigns to report, politicians seeking control over the tech industry, software projects spreading to become platforms, some security fails, and Google continuing to crush all before it, this could be the news for any show. But there’s been more going on than just the above, and we even managed to find a few positive stories to add into the mix.

After your feedback, we interviewed Ikey Doherty. A familiar name to many from his time working on LMDE and SolusOS, more recently Ikey has been devoting his time towards building Evolve OS and the Budgie desktop. Thanks to Ikey for his time, and we look forward to bringing you updates as the project progresses.

Perhaps it’s winter drawing in, but the news dominating the FLOSS world over the last fortnight has not been particularly sunny; we featured stories on security woes, Mozilla lows, and Debian blows this show.

Following the feedback section, we again caught up with Martin Wimpress, and talked about the reception received by the recently released Ubunbtu MATE 14.04 LTS version. We’ve been really positive about the whole project, but has it produced a distro you could live with until 2019? Listen on for our review.

Following a news segment that ranged from the enterprise right down to Mozilla’s plans for the lowly RPi gathering dust in your drawer, Jesse brought us his first impressions of a distro that aims to save aged hardware from becoming landfill.

After your feedback, we spun up Trisquel 7, the latest and greatest 100% libre distro to gain the FSF stamp of approval. But how did it match up to our more exacting standards? Listen on to find out.
