TechBytes Audiocast – Episode 27 – 21/01/11

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

Hosts: Tim (OpenBytes) Roy (Techrights) Gordon (Thistleweb)

Featured Track: “Casino Beach” by Greenwich Cavern

The TechBytes official webpage is soon about to launch.  In the meantime the show is available on Techrights.

Your three favourite co-hosts are back together for this show and as usual we discuss a plethora of topics.  Quoting my regular phrase of “lets crack on” we manage to be sidetracked with numerous debates stemming from the topics at hand whilst also bringing the level of the conversation down with a quick mention of RIM.

Its “carry on computing” tonight with tongue in cheek humour and innuendo!

I hope you will join us.

Pardus – a mention of a new release.  We also mention Linux in China.  Imposed distributions in Internet Cafes?

US phone tracker –  We discuss the implications….tracking on mobile phones, good idea or a diversion?

Windows phone 7 and its leaking data…..a credible challenge to Apple and Google? Really?

Gordon talks about – Its not what you think!

Xfce – We talk about the DE, what about BSD? Linux only features?

We discuss Ubuntu/Unity – Whats your take?

Ubuntu One/Drop Box

Monofree – We highlight a package which will ensure you are free of Mono.

Your Data in the cloud – Good idea? We discuss and ask, is local storage still relevant?

Cedega / Wine and the GPL – We discuss this issue.  Cedega is abandoned?

Ex-Microsoft employee’s at Intel & Nokia wants to work closely with Microsoft?  How far do Microsoft roots spread?

Another Linux title to be released, this time for fans of Elite 2 – Frontier.  Looking forward Pioneer.
