All Kinds Of Fail
11th February 2008: Season 5 Episode 11 : 95.14
- We review the fish command line shell and wonder whether shells can ever be interesting (1.50) [Tell us about why shells are important, or why no-one should care, or your views on fish at the LugRadio forums>]
- Pimp My LugRadio, the competition to win an Asus Eee PC, approaches its end: get your entries in (something to promote LugRadio) by the 18th of February if you want to win! (9.15)
- We review the Dell M1330 laptop to see whether it's any good (11.11)
- Why can't home users get paid support for Linux at a reasonable price? Would it be a good idea for distributors to offer phone support, or is IRC good enough? (23.39) [Do you want phone support? Do your parents? Why won't it work? Discuss on the LugRadio forums]
- In the second part of the LugRadio Lock-In, we talk about whether distributions should innovate ahead of their upstream projects, or whether new work should happen upstream by default (38.50)
- We want to hear from you! Get in touch with suggestions for the LugRadio Krypton Factor, if you want to exhibit your project or company, run a BoF, or be part of the crew atLugRadio Live USA, and your ideas for Cool vs. Care (71.01)
- Words from you: your emails! This week we're talked to (and are talking about) audio prompts, Linux Fest Northwest, jokes about fish (not the shell), the MSI Megabook laptop, Frets on Fire (an open source Guitar Hero clone), Fedora porn sites, PyCon 2008 in the US, buying software, buying Windows, KDE 4 again, and vendor lock-in (74.47)
- LugRadio Live USA 2008 is now only two months away! Prepare yourselves. And go watch the LRL2008 USA promotional video and post it on your own blog! (87.50)
