19th December 2005: Season 3 Episode 5 : 89:36

Jono Bacon, Stuart Langridge, a fully recovered Ade Bradshaw, and Matthew Revell talk about Linux and whatever else comes along, including:

  • The Prophet LugRadio: a review of the predictions made in the 2004 Christmas special and just how wrong we were
  • BuddyPing: we talk to Justin Davies about buddyPing and social networks, and then argue amongst ourselves about it
  • A competition! Novell have donated some stuff to be given away, and you could win! Enter our competition, "Stupid Hat for Corporate Tat", by sending a picture of yourself in the stupidest hat you can buy, steal, or construct to Bonus points for having the word "LugRadio" on your hat, or anything else that we find funny like wearing an enormous chin prosthesis or something
  • Aaron Seigo with a five-minute update on where the KDE desktop is headed, cool stuff they're working on, and integration with
  • Hype or Shite (it returns!): this week the team talk about eye candy. Is looking pretty important? Does eye candy just mean looking pretty?
  • Your letters, and the LugRadio community speaks through the medium of voicemail

A very merry Christmas to all our listeners. We'll be back in 2006!
