Linux Outlaws 29 - It's a Bloody Nightmare
On the show this time: Lots of M$-bashing again, Dan’s Windows rant and much more.
Unfortunately, we start the show with bad news again. Sadly, Arthur C. Clarke, one of the greatest science fiction writers of all time, has died. Also, we correct a mistake from an earlier show since people told us that there is in fact a multimedia centre distro for Linux, which is called Linux MCE.

Dan’s Rant & Package of the Week (57:23)
We also have a rant by Dan on Windows as he’s rediscovered the pain of installing and using that particular operating system.
Package of the Week:
Fab: Firefly Media Server (aka. mt-daap), stream your music over your LAN
Dan: gBrainy, train your brain on Gnome
We then close the show with wishing everyone Happy Easter (sorry for the late release — it’s entirely Fab’s fault since he was insanely busy at work). Please comment on this show in the forums!
