Something borrowed, something blue

15 November 2004: Season 2 Episode 3 : 64:19

Jono Bacon, Stuart Langridge (Aq), Matt Revell and Ade Bradshaw chat about:
  • Sparkes' best bits: Steve Parkes leaves the team, and we all say ave atque vale, except that Jono has no idea what that means
  • Ade's baldest bits: Ade Bradshaw officially joins the team and gets the LR welcome
  • Paying for small software: regular listener Schwuk joins us to talk about people's willingness to pay for software where there are free alternatives readily available
  • The future of Firefox, and why (and whether) Microsoft seems to not have noticed the (minor?) threat
  • Novell Linux Desktop 9: the new release, and the involvement of corporate licencing in the open source world
  • The NHS condemn 900,000 desktops to Windows, not incidentally spending £500 million of our money on it
  • Powergen's broken website, and all the other end of show stuff
