If You're Not Into Metal

25th March 2008: Season 5 Episode 14 : 92.30

Jono Bacon, Stuart Langridge, and Adam Sweet talk about Linux, open source, and all manner of associated things. This show includes:
  • Rob McQueen of Collabora talks about consulting in the open source world and what's going on with GStreamer (2.20)
  • With recent small moves from Radiohead and Nine Inch Nails, among others, towards a Creative-Commons-ish sort of music release process, what's next for the music industry? Can a different model for music really exist? (14.58) [Discuss this on the LugRadio forums]
  • Richard Querin wins the LugRadio competition to give Aza Raskin a new hat (39.37)
  • Go and pre-register for LugRadio Live USA -- there's less than a month to go! If you recommend your friends to also pre-register, you can win an Asus Eee PC or a Neuros OSD media player (43.06)
  • Django, the Python web framework: what's it all about? What's the point of it, and what's it for? (45.45) [Discuss this on the LugRadio forums]
  • Your letters: this week we've got comments about, among other things, acceptable non-free software, unfairness to the absent Chris, which mp3/ogg player device people would recommend (send in your answers!), whether we do too much "meta" stuff, Rockbox, and Aq being a god of war (63.56)
