You spin me right round

23rd April 2007: Season 4 Episode 17 : 98:43

Jono Bacon, Stuart Langridge and guest presenters Chris Jones and Matt Lee talk about Linux, free software, open source, and a variety of other stuff, including:
  • Are the FSF and GNU still important? We talk to Matt Lee who works closely with GNU about the FSF, GNU, Defective By Design, Bad Vista and where the FSF and GNU are positioned in the community and where they are important. (3.53)
  • Crazy SydAdmin Foo: we talk to Chris Jones, one of the SysAdmins at Canonical about what life is like for a SysAdmin and what kind of black magic is involved to keep things ticking. (38.30)
  • The P and Ade return for a segment so we can talk to John Alfred Knottenbelt from Introversion games, makers of Uplink, Defcon and other games in which Linux is a platform. (55.26)
  • This week, the new fellas have been mostly playing with Thunderbird 2 and Asterisk. (71.56)
  • A bumper selection of emails and other usual randomness. (82.24)
  • We loved Matt Lee so much, we recorded a short bonus interview with him - be wowed at his rather unconventional responses. (99.54)
