Embracing (and extending) change

10th March 2008: Season 5 Episode 13 : 87.30

Jono Bacon, Stuart Langridge, Chris Procter, and Adam Sweet talk about Linux, open source, and all manner of associated things. This show includes:
  • The Mono Worm Turns: Stuart, a past critic of the Mono project, explains how his views have changed and why he's less concerned than before (3.14) [What do you think of Mono? Discuss in the LugRadio forums]
  • Blu-Ray wins: after a protracted battle for hearts and minds, the next DVD format for HD video will be Blu-Ray. What's that all about? The team discuss the new format and how it's relevant to what we do (19.52) [Discuss in the LugRadio forums]
  • Microsoft have now committed to an "interoperability promise", but do we trust them? Can the leopard really change its spots, or is this just more of the same? Musings on Microsoft's past history, and why this time might be different (33.26) [Is it really different this time? Discuss in the LugRadio forums]
  • A quick recap of the exhibition area at LugRadio Live and who's going to be there: if you want to exhibit your project at LRL USA in April, contact us, but time's running out! (62.48)
  • Your thoughts, comments, bouquets and brickbats in our email box (64.58)

Now in better stereo than the last episode! Yes, that's right, our new motto is "LugRadio: not quite as bad as before!" People have mentioned that (a) they don't like the stereo and (b) the encoding quality on the last show wasn't as good as usual from us. So, from now on, the high-quality mp3 will be bigger than before (because we've increased the quality of it) and the lower-quality mp3 will be mono (so people who don't like stereo can still listen to the show). Let us know on the LR forums if you discover any new issues, and thanks for the feedback.
