Lock, Stock, and One Smoking Barrel

8th October 2007: Season 5 Episode 2 : 75.00

Jono Bacon, Stuart Langridge, Chris Procter and Adam Sweet talk about Linux, open source, and all manner of associated things. This show includes:
  • Where's our open source online office suite going to come from? There are plenty of web-based office programs now, but none of them are open source. Can the free software community build a project like this, and do we need to? (1.06)
  • Greg Kroah-Hartman, kernel and udev developer, talks about the Linux Driver Project, kernel hacking, and what he's doing at Novell (18.15)
  • Is the free software world eating itself alive? Criticism and cooperation across projects: should we all be nice or is it OK to stick the boot in? (26.48)
  • A mystery tour...where is our mystery project of the week? (40.10)
  • Emails from lots of people: keep sending them in! (53.50)
  • LugRadio Live USA news: we're looking for venue suggestions (the DNA Lounge, which we were aiming for, is over-21 only, sadly!) Contact us at if you know of a good event venue for LRL USA in San Francisco.

About LugRadio

LugRadio was a fortnightly British radio show that took a relaxed, humorous look at Linux and open source. The show finished in 2008, sort of, but there have been occasional reunions and conferences since then.

Note: the language on the show may offend some.
