Linux Outlaws 13 - Night Elf Mohawk
We mention our first audio feedback submission from Leon Vayman and the fact that it was a great clip, but a bit too long to include it into the show. John from Munich requests a manual download link for the Ogg files, which Fab is working on.
Adam asks about a theme park sim game for Linux. If you know anything like that, send us some email! There is a project called Lincity, maybe you want to check that out. As for running Windows games under Wine, Roller Coaster Tycoon looks good, Sim Theme Park doesn’t.
Peter Cannon sends us another hilarious email.
Also, Andrea clarifies that he indeed is a guy an tells us how he solved his problem with Thunderbird and Swiftfox which is greatly appreciated. He also mentions osalt.com and linuxappfinder.com/alternatives where you can find free alternatives to a given Windows program (original Lifehacker article).
We also talk a bit about the ATI experience under Linux and 3D graphics cards and drivers in general. If you have any opinions on that, feel free to write in and let us know.

The new ATI driver for Linux supports Ubuntu 7.10 now. If you have an ATI card, this is certainly good news.
We also discuss the recent controversy involving Microsoft’s OOXML and the GNOME Foundation. Check out Bruce Byfield’s full article on Linux.com for the full scoop. We also rathole about Richard Stallman, Miguel de Icaza and Australian cricketers.
Just for fun, Fab plugs the amazing Mr. T ad for World of Warcraft. Download or watch it and also the William Shatner one here.
