To start off we introduce ourselves and Fab gives an overview of our plans for the podcast. Dan goes on and tells the story of his Linux epiphany and his discovery of how deep the rabbit hole really is. Fab explains how he got into using Linux.
We then talk a bit about virtual machines and gaming. Both Dan & Fab are running VMware for Linux. Fab used to be a huge Command & Conquer geek and explains why he has never started to play WoW. We later go on to discuss Wine and Cedega as alternatives to gaming on Windows.
Following that, we talk about the argument that Linux supposedly takes too much time to learn because it’s allegedly too complicated. Dan says give it another chance and Fab gives the advice to try as many Linux distributions as you can. Dan is currently using Ubuntu while Fab runs Linux Mint.
Dan mentions that Linux is everywhere, including on his Linksys WRT54G router. We also talked about the elitist attitude of some hardcore Linux users and want you to send us stories of your experience with Linux (please use the contact form on the website).
