TechBytes Audiocast – Episode 54 – 07/07/11 – “Gimme some money!”


July 6, 2011 by openbytes

Intro music: “I fought the troll” by Tom Smith.  You can find more of his work here.

Hosts: Tim (OpenBytes) Roy (Techrights)

Due to Roy being so quick with the show notes for another episode of the TechBytes show, I’ll rely mainly on Roy’s text to give you further insight into what this show contains.

Suffice to say, we cover topics involving Linux, Microsoft Tax.  We talk about the OpenSource console Uzbox, homebrew development and another look at GCStar, invaluable for those who want to catalogue collections.

Although unable to be in the show itself (for copyright reasons) I’d like to link to a Spinal Tap Track on Youtube which for me makes a great tribute to Microsoft making money out of Linux:
