I punched my XPS.

Gnome finally has a 'No frills' ability according to Matt as the team discuss the virtues of fancy tricks over good old comfort zones. Dell launches an Ubuntu laptop on their XPS range but Pete is less than impressed given Dell's bed hopping when it comes to operating systems.

We seem to be breaking the supposed cardinal rule of podcasting and talking a hell of a lot about other shows as Matt tells us all about Joe Ressington's new show Linux Luddites. Everyone loves Cyanogen? Clearly Google doesn't as they demanded the installer for Cyanogen is removed from the play store or they'll remove it for them! Shades of Microsoft's "There should only be one OS on computers." Springs to mind.

Creative Commons releases 4.0 of its license. Pete enthuses to Matt at some of the changes while Matt seems to have an air of "Meh" about him.

Matt's Cat
Yep it's a whole new section as we jump on the bandwagon of the growing number of geek cat lovers and their #caterday on the Interwebs.

"Canonical should hire a Community Manager." Slightly controversial but we do like to stir things up on this show. The guys discuss an article entitled The Burning Bridges of Ubuntu which nicely rounds up the last twelve months of turmoil within and created by Canonical nee Ubuntu. Sadly Pete makes Matt very depressed with his "Here, use my car" analogy.

Blame the junior.

Sadly Matt was not drinking this episode and so a lot of people managed to get off very lightly. As per usual there is lots of waffle prior to the show starting but seeing as I can't remember what we talked about you'll just have to listen. First up Matt tells us about how Gimp has removed its Windows executable from sourceforge due to the enforced third-party add-ons. "Let's get it accredited" TrueCrypt are now in a position to go through a security audit thanks to a successful crowdfunding campaign. So yet another indiegogo campaign hits the web as former writers for Linux Format look to set up a new magazine Linux Voice. Pete and Matt start off this item fairly positive but by the end seem to be unsure if anybody actually reads magazines any more given the wealth of information now available via the Internet.

Canonical made a bit of a mistake the other day by hitting Fix Ubuntu with a trademark violation notification e-mail. Clearly what Canonical really wanted was a cease and desist notification but you can't really ask people to stop saying horrible things about you. Interestingly Fix Ubuntu is more about helping users make the distribution more usable and doesn't say "Don't install this go and install Fedora instead!" So in fact the site is actually helping Ubuntu which makes this all the more strange. Mark Shuttleworth's blog issued a very weak apology and a lame excuse blaming a junior member of staff which Pete gets upset about. And while on the subject of trademarks Pete gave Matt what in his view was a clear example of Microsoft potentially violating Canonical's trademark by using what appears to be an almost identical copy of the Ubuntu logo.

So Tig (or as we like to call him "Tig the bastard") sent in this item about the levels of people submitting code to the kernel for the main topic. This is the item that some of you on G+ may have seen Pete post a picture of him highlighting paragraphs on a printout ready for the show which caused such a stir for the presenter of TSTCBN :-D

Pete was all excited about this item given that on the face of it it seemed to be about encouraging more women to contribute however as Matt pointed out it was in fact one of Pete's pet hates, positive vetting.

Maelstrom in a Mircup?

This episode starts off very rude and sadly gets no better as Matt consumes more wine. Hands up all those who remember LugRadio? Well the godfather of podcasting Jono Bacon is back again with a new show called Badvoltage a shameless rip-off of #tdtrs yet done by people who actually know what they are talking about apparently?

USB Forum has basically told hobbyists to "Fook off" when it comes to using the official Vendor and Product ID's so the the tdtrs team suggest making up your own numbers.
"What! You don't like our game? Oi Youtube, take that video down." Yep Matt tells us all about an outrageous situation whereby a game producer has issued a DMCA notice to Youtube and had a member of the publics review of their game taken down.
Linus Torvalds will clearly not be happy until he has picked a fight with just about everyone on the planet it would seem as Pete tells us how Linus bitches about the fact Fedora uses old kernels in its install images.

Did you know the latest release of OSX is called Mavericks? And did you also know that Ubuntu 10.10 was called Maverick? Well here's a scary thought, both releases are where it all started to go wrong so is the name Maverick jinxed we ask.

Hand gestures. Some of you may remember the team discussed Leap Motion as well as Point and Grab and using a wave of your hand to control your system? Well Google as you'd expect has entered the arena and purchased Flutter a startup in the hand gesture technology field.

Twats before OggCamp

So the show seems to have started worrying about being 'correct' for some strange reason, "It's never bothered you two before?" we start off with a raft of corrections and an apology no less.

Matt tells us about a support group for developers that promotes itself as 'touchy feely' unless you're a programmer? Pete has a good laugh at the fact poor old Microsoft users are having to get used to incremental updates instead of 'update Tuesday'. Marie, Matt's long suffering partner sends in the next item, a study by the LSE (London School of Economics) demonstrating substantive evidence in the decline of copyright infringement where Creative Commons is involved.

The new BBC service 'Playlister' mentioned by Pete.

Matt rounds off the warming up section by telling us that W3C has given the green light to DRM. Pete is less than pleased.
