Not Bob Plums

25th September 2006: Season 4 Episode 2 : 92:02

Jono Bacon, Stuart Langridge, Matt Revell, Ade Bradshaw, and special studio guest Scott James "Three Shot" Remnant talk about Linux and open source and a variety of other stuff, including:
  • Ah, Distro! Which distro are you? Which are the team? Either a measured and logical comparison of Linux distributions or an excuse for petty namecalling on the part of the presenters; you be the judge! (2.01)
  • The previous segment includes a special bonus kicking for Ade about opening up his private wiki full of useful information, too, and the usefulness generally of taking your knowledge and publishing it on the web (10.50)
  • Pia Waugh talks about Software Freedom Day (19.24)
  • Make Time or Fuck Off! Is it reasonable to demand that people using free software should make time to contribute to the community? Could people find more time than they do? Do open source projects give the impression that you should? (29.33)
  • Scott James Remnant talks about upstart, a subsystem for starting, stopping, and managing processes, and what it means for distributions that will use it (57.00)
  • Many, many emails (68.27)
