EP84 – Cats like watching you pee.

And it’s still kicking off over at Debian as Joey Hess announces he’s leaving the project which Matt seems to think is no major issue while Pete seems far too impressed with Joey’s dial-up skills.

The FSF announce the launch of a copyleft site designed to be a focal point for information and guidance for those needing that type of license. Yet again Matt is not overly impressed, and Pete thinks it’s just some sort of Creative Commons clone.

Happy birthday to you, happy Birthday Firefox happy 10 years birthday.

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.

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!

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

EP81 – I have not been to Oxford town.

So this is just Matt and Pete chatting, to be honest (No change there then?) we wanted to put something out for you to listen to while travelling to Oxford. Matt kicks off by telling us about his visit to BarCamp London and the quaint way they use bits of paper to offer talks. No CampFireManager there then? What’s happening then? We look at the OggCamp schedule and decide that the only individual we know is the only person on the planet louder than Pete, Stuart Langridge.

EP80 – Doing it in a field.

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 doesn’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.

EP79 – Controlling soup.

Facebook maps anyone? Facebook it would seem is looking to employ a developer to develop its own OS and is seeking an individual with the skills of Linus Torvalds. The team asks where this is going and is this likely to become an alternative to Google’s services only on a much smaller scale. Microsoft has that much money it can afford to lose Billions! Convinced that the MS Surface will be a success if they just lose enough money over it, the question is, after losing $1.73 Billion so far is the Surface the new Zune?

City of London cops swoop on evil proxy provider offering illicit connections to 36 banned websites. The question is still “What crime has been committed?” Have you heard of photopedia because we haven’t? The guys after looking on the Interwebs lament the loss of a Creative Commons Licensed service providing some quality stock photo’s and ask the question “Why couldn’t they sell them?”

EP78 – You’ve got stupid nipples.

First up Matt gives Pete a shoeing over his disgraceful lack of abiding by the Creative Commons code of conduct with regards the bumper music for EP77. So we start off talking about the EFF Open Router which is nice and cheap and as the title says ‘Open’ so you can tinker away till your heart’s content. “You dead yet?” Pete tells us all about Endings a Yahoo Japan service that will snuff out all your web stuff and tell your friends you’ve kicked the bucket.

Microsoft redundancies. 18,000 people lose their job all of them mostly from Nokia. But what’s this? 5,000 was, in fact, Microsoft employees? Was this a way for MS to quietly shed some staff without affecting their share price too much? So the UK government is to adopt Open Standards for all of its documentation, however, Matt thinks it’s a hollow victory and ponders whether the Microsoft support contract is up for renewal. One Windows for all. Yes, Microsoft is actively pursuing a unified desktop experience across multiple devices. Hang on? Someone else thinks they can do that? Pete finally solves this problem by working out that once we all have a wrist watch device that does everything, we will also have that elusive convergence.

GOG or to you and me Good Old Games is releasing a new (Or should that be old?) slew of games. Only trouble is by the time you’ll here this the offer will be over! Oops. So according to Matt, there’s a new incentive out there that even Pete ‘might’ be able to contribute to. AppStream is an attempt to get descriptions written for cross-platform applications using your Fedora account and GitHub. It’s all thought out pretty well, you’ll be assigned a couple of apps, given a timeslot to get your write-up done and in return, you’ll get accreditation on the app AND, wait for it, a nice shiny Fedora badge. (But not one you can pin on your chest we think?)

Hands up who remembers the much vaunted Ubuntu on Android? Well, it’s another project that’s fallen to the cost cutting going on at Canonical Towers. Fancy an Orange? Yep, the boys talk about the new Ubuntu Orange box but are it Ubuntu’s? After clawing over the specifications Pete and Matt are not impressed with the costs or for that matter the supposed usage.
