A few weeks ago I was in the UK and got together with the LugRadio team (Stuart Langridge, Adam Sweet, Chris Procter, and Ade Bradshaw) for a bit of a reunion. Thanks to Tony Whitmore and Laura Cowen from the Ubuntu UK Podcast for recording the show.

In the show we discuss:

  • Social networking: what’s identi.ca’s place in the new world order? Is it free-software-specific, and is that a good thing or not? (1.40)
  • The Devil’s Drink: a quiz with an unpleasant forfeit for getting questions wrong, and which could be construed as a way to make Adam’s life miserable. See the video (Part 1 Part 2) (15.45)
  • LibreOffice, OpenOffice, and Oracle: what does it mean that there are now two competing suites, and where do we go from here? (29.50)
  • In season 2 we talked about viruses on Linux and whether they were a problem. Seven years later, we revisit the situation in the light of the rise of Macintosh viruses and say: are we still right to be smugly safe? (44.10)

You can download it here.

Also, be sure to see the awesome LugRadio documentary that Tony made when the show ended.
