  • The egoless desktop -- does the open source community have an advantage over the proprietary world because we don't have to push the names of each project? Is it just as important to have people have loyalty to a particular piece of software even if there's no revenue stream? How vital are brands in the free software world? (38.10) [Discuss this topic in the LugRadio forums]
  • LugRadio Live 2008 USA is this Saturday! One final reminder: if you want to go, you can pre-register for a ticket, and remember that there are some really cool prizes on offer if you recommend more friends to buy a ticket than anyone else does! See you all on Saturday... (62.28)
