EP83 – Sub category of why.

As we keep telling everyone, our show is not just about Linux and with that in mind this episode kicks off with a discussion about a program on the television called The Apprentice which nobody will be surprised to learn is one of Pete’s favourites. Having promised Corenominal AKA Sergeant Bilko that we would not cover systemd we decide, as per usual, to break our word and do the story anyway and cover Ian Jackson‘s tactical call for a GR (General Resolution) vote for Debian Jessie and how some of the Dev’s are considering forking Debian. The highlight of this discussion is when Pete actually defends Mark Shuttleworth!

Have we become brand name (Google AKA Nexus) slaves? Pete tells us how he mentioned on G+ that he’d like a Tesco‘s Hudl 2 and was promptly shunned by the Google Nexus brigade.

Matt’s cat

Main Topic
OggCamp Roundup: Matt can’t really tell us anything as he was hardly there! So Pete fills in with the “I’m only paying £15!” curry story, the Geeks giving two fingers bus story and not forgetting Matt and Pete reminiscing about the worst landlady in Britain.

It began in South Africa
No news is good news: So where’s the news from Canonical? Matt and Pete discuss the tumble-weed blowing across the Ubuntu plains, and Pete confesses he may have misjudged Jono Bacon’s marketing skills.
What’s in a name? Matt comes up with a far better name for the latest Ubuntu release: Voluptuous Velociraptor, but the team discuss the real fact that there are only four more names left!

South London Makerspace
And finally, they have a new home now Matt needs money and donations of paint to tart the place up.
