Take a spoon

4th December 2006: Season 4 Episode 7 : 90.30

Jono Bacon, Stuart Langridge, Adam "stand-in for Matt" Sweet , and Ade Bradshaw talk about Linux, open source, and a variety of other stuff, including:
  • Jokosher 0.2 is now available; Jono and Aq explain why we're not yet using it for LugRadio, what 0.2 does that 0.1 didn't, and what's next on the horizon for the best audio editor in the world (2.16)
  • Simon Phipps from Sun talks about Java now being open sourced and what Sun are going to do now, as well as giving Pipex a kicking for his DSL connection not working (19.03)
  • Mark Shuttleworth of Canonical emailed the OpenSuSE developers list to invite those developers to join Ubuntu. Jono gets a (pretty undeserved) kicking for this from the rest of the team and the nature of "party lines", and defends himself admirably (34.30)
  • Many, many emails, and email-prompted discussion, including more on release cycles, anechoic rooms, source for creative endeavours like art and music, open source pets that don't need feeding, codecs, and Adam's ring (50.25)
