Podcast #24

without comments

Direct download link: MP3

An interesting mix of News this show, ranging through a number of FOSS distro and application releases; a concerning report on Debian’s LTS strategy; a fresh push for the obsoleting of TCP/IP; and the inevitable discussion prompted by the GnomeOS cabal showing a little more leg.

Jesse gave us his First Impressions of Slackel Linux, whilst Paddy was handed yet another KDE-based distro for next time, in the shape of ZevenOS.

After a bumper bag of Feedback, we took a look at ownCloud. A cloud platform for the masses, or just a few drips held aloft on hot air? Listen on to find out.

Head on over to our website for full show notes with links to everything we talked about, and for an opportunity to comment.

EP80 – Doing it in a field.

without comments

The opening of the show Pete discovers he needs to learn every soap opera in the world as he tells Matt how work has been like an episode of Emmerdale and we also discover he has a 'thing' for girls in white stilettos! Matt tells us about the personal slaves he will have on his holiday and Pete rages with jealousy.

Microsoft considers changing the name of IE in the hope of being a kind of 'born again' browser. "Update Tuesday killed my machine." Microsoft released a windows 8 update that blue screens hundreds of machines. "Bye bye Stevie Bye bye" Steve Balmer finally bows out. Are you being scammed on Microsoft's app store? Pete dosen't seem to think so.

Is Munich about to move back to Microsoft? But with the announcement that Microsoft is to open an office in Munich Pete wonders if he smells a rat. In the same vein we hear about how Microsoft is lobbying the Chilean government to not use open source. Clearly there has been very little Linux news as the systemd argument erupts again. Oh, and by the way Linux has turned 23.
