EP86 – Merry Linux Christmas

Just what has Pete got in his sack? And how many times can Matt squeeze “Linux!” into this episode? Rather than giving you a load of outtakes the team has decided to do a semi-normal show but with some surprises thrown in. First up are you ready for Christmas? We hear about how Matt hardly has room for a piece of A4 paper in his multi-million pound flat “Nothing big for pity’s sake!”

So the only opening story for discussion is Revisiting open source social networking alternatives which Matt seems to think Pete will be interested in? He’s a G+ fanboy you young impressionable fool
