Munich rowing back from Linux? Maybe not, but the story again raises the question of why Linux is so poorly represented in desktop market share, and we offered some opinions during the News segment.

Joe gave us his First Impressions of AUSTRUMI Linux, whilst Jesse was handed another Slackware-based distro for next time.

After your Feedback, we took a look at the Blackbox, Fluxbox, Hackedbox and Openbox window managers, before rounding off the show talking about a console text editor that respects your existing muscle memory.

In the News this show, the UK’s privacy tsar gives a clean bill of health to Ubuntu’s Shopping Lens; ‘BadUSB’ proves to actually be really rather bad; two cloud companies show they’re thinking about the children; and more FOSS wins. We also talked about new chips from IBM, Intel and NVIDIA.

Paddy gave us his First Impressions of MEPIS, whilst DistroWatch’s Random Button handed Joe the Slackware-based AUSTRUMI to look at next time.

After your Feedback, we talked with Jonathan Nadeau about the new release of his Sonar GNU/Linux distro, and the state of Linux accessibility in general.

And we rounded things off with Jesse telling us about Hugin, which is one of his favourite free software photo manipulation tools.

In the News this show, openSUSE bringing out a rolling release; two initiatives from the EFF; several apparent wins for the FOSS community; and a storm in a teacup over Android security, albeit one that illustrates a valid underlying point.

Jesse took a look at RISC OS on the Raspberry Pi in First Impressions, and Paddy caught the bullet of another KDE distro for next time.

After a few words about OggCamp and your Feedback, we spun up Zorin OS 9, a distro that promises much for the Windows refugee. How does it deliver?

We ended the show Over a Pint, talking about how much we really can trust our software – even when the source code is available.

KDE’s Plasma 5 was launched and a new Raspberry Pi hit the streets, privacy shenanigans courtesy of the UK Parliament, and will Chrome OS or the Apple-IBM tie up prove more disruptive to the tech industry in the long-term? All these stories and more featured in our News segment this show.

Joe gave us his First Impressions of StartOS, whilst Jesse will be looking at RISC OS on the Pi for the next show. And the two of them gave us their hands-on opinion of Google Glass after visiting an Explorer event in London.

In our main segment, we took a look at IceWM, JWM and EDE; three lightweight WMs/DMs, and practical alternatives all, but for whom? And we rounded things off by interviewing Sanel Zukan, the lead developer of the EDE project.

Google and Facebook dominated the industry and mainstream press over the last fortnight, and we discussed the details that matter. We also managed to slip in a few stories unrelated to our new tech overlords.

Paddy gave us his First Impressions of Frugalware, whilst Joe will be looking at StartOS for the next show.

After your Feedback, we spoke to Perl guru Randal L. Schwartz, then rounded off the show with a dive into the release candidate of Deepin 2014, a distro that borrows liberally from elsewhere, but has a few killer features all its own.

In the News, RHEL 7, Docker and systemd; tech companies increasingly eating our lunch; some interesting developments – both current and speculative – in the hardware field, and a whole lot more.

Joe talked about Puppy Linux in First Impressions, and handed Paddy Frugalware for the next show.

After a bumper load of Feedback, we kicked the tyres on PCLinuxOS, and went Off the Beaten Path to look at three self-hosted RSS feed aggregators.
