3rd December 2007: Season 5 Episode 6 : 76.46
- The return (briefly) of the long-lamented Hype or Shite segment, with Hypervisor or Shite! Chris and Adam explain what virtualization is actually all about and why people should care: if you're wondering what the difference between Xen and VMWare and QEmu actually is, or you like the idea of having one server which is actually thirty servers, then this is the section for you! (2.00) (Discuss virtualisation here on the LugRadio forums)
- How do we deal with people giving "advice" to newbies where the advice is malicious trolling that deletes their hard drive? Is this symptomatic of a wider problem? Should we be changing the way Linux works to try and counteract this problem? (23.45) (Discuss this subject on the LugRadio forums)
- Why do we actually bother with all this? Why spend all this time working with Linux and open source? The first of a new series looking at the reasons we think people get into all this stuff, and what that means (35.20) (Tell us why you got into Linux on the LugRadio forums)
- Your emails, covering all sorts of things like robotics, OpenStreetMap, Microsoft's Open Source lab, and Robert Plant (46.15)
