The Meeks shall inherit the earth

23 May 2005: Season 2 Episode 16 : 80.14

Jono Bacon, Stuart Langridge (Aq), and Ade Bradshaw talk about Linux and whatever else comes along, including:

  • Michael Meeks, Novell hacker and Busiest Man Alive, talks about, Gnome, how you can get involved, and how to get lots of work done by not spending all day reading other people's weblogs
  • Building communities: why some projects attract a large and vibrant community and others don't, and what we can do about it
  • Distro Wars, part III: 75% of the team review the six chosen distributions and distributors (Xandros, Linspire, Novell, Red Hat, Ubuntu, and Gentoo) against various different criteria. This week, they're being reviewed for potential for world domination
  • ZeroConf: what it is and whether we should be using it in Linux
  • Letters and emails and phone calls, oh my!
