LugRadio Reunion 2011

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.

    “LibreOffice, OpenOffice, and Oracle: what does it mean that there are now two competing suites, and where do we go from here? (29.50)”

    We use LibreOffice.

    Matthew Smith: and the next time an opportunity like getting ODF adopted by a standards body comes up? Do we ignore it? If not, who’s going to do the work to make that happen? Last time, it was IBM and a bunch of other corporations.
