One Foot In The Grave
28th January 2008: Season 5 Episode 10 : 94.34
- The KDE project have released KDE 4.0, their shiny and rebuilt new version which will take them into the next five years. We've tried it out to see what we think. (2.30) [What did you think of KDE 4.0? Was naming it 4.0 the right decision? Let us know on the LugRadio forums]
- In the first of a two-part interview, we talk to Aaron Seigo and Will Stephenson of the KDE project, live from the KDE 4.0 release event in Mountain View. They tell us about how the event's going: Aaron will also be on the next show to respond to our reviews and concerns about KDE 4.0 (22.46)
- In the final LugRadio Top Trumps, Jono gives his scores in the five criteria that we think define the reasons why people are interested in Linux. With extra bonus scores from Matt! (29.17) [How do you score? Tell us, or tell us what the criteria should have been, on the forums]
- Lots of things from all of you. We're pointed at fish, a replacement command-line shell to use instead of bash. K3B plays fanfares when you manage to burn a CD, and we talk about audio alerts being integrated into the desktop. Aq gets shoed about buying a proprietary laptop and loses his temper, as someone writes in to say that their laptop worked perfectly. People have been happily using the new Nokia N810, and we've got a review of it sent in to us. The LugRadio forums have been discussing KDE 4.0 and their approach of naming it 4.0 even though it's still in development, in advance of our review of the same. (55.22)
- We're asked what would make us leave the world of free software. A forums post asked the question, and we take this opportunity to answer. Go tell us what would make you leave! (69.22)
