In this special episode, we explain in detail how we produce this show including what hard- and software we use for recording and publishing (with a special focus on the tools available in Linux as well as the problems that the platform still faces in this area).
But first off, we talk about the forums again, including this great video of Bill Gates almost saying that Vista sucks which was posted there:
We also talk a bit about the emails we received this week:
- Rob Collins asks about touch screen support in Linux, especially for his HP TX1320 convertible
- Mark Rice clarifies that he had actually found out about us in Linux Format Magazine
- Gregory Malsack tells us about his recent experience with Norton Anti-Virus
We also talk about the latest very critical Windows vulnerability and Peter Cannon’s Nokia N810 review which we’ll talk about on the next show. On another note, we received news that Ewedrive has discontinued their backup service while JungleDisk is still going strong. Also: KDE 4.0 is out (we will also talk about this in detail on the next show).
We then go on to explain in detail how we record, produce and publish this show.
