Episode 30 is hosted over on TechRights

The three of us are present for episode 30.  In typical Techbytes fashion we take a topic, discuss, then fork it, going off in an entirely different direction.  Today we cover a whole host of subjects, clocking in at a little under 2 hours.

* Talking Linux and FOSS events…..Microsoft sponsporship?  Who really wins?

* Microsoft MVP’s – The dangers or merely a title with little real value anymore?

* Nokia “Microsoft Inside”? – Competition for Android?

* From Hero to Zero – Taking the Windows l33t to Linux newb!

* Debian new version released!

* Talking Mint! We are all impressed

* Uniformity on Linux apps? We discussed.

* “Sexy People doing brave things” – Is this a file sharer or Hollywood’s interpretation of a “Pirate”

We discuss the latest email leak by Anonymous, its implications and what we don’t know about the collection of individuals.

Pioneer – Brief mention is made of an Elite 2 – Frontier inspired game for Linux.  It will bring a tear to the eye of any fan of the game of yesteryear.

* Gordon recommends an audiobook which is free to download:

I also offer advice to would be podcasters, but you’ll have to wait until the end to find out what! It will explain my earlier disappearance from the show for a few minutes and maybe serve as a warning!

We hope you enjoy episode 30.

  1. “sexy people do brave things” this must be a pirate they say that sex sells and most of the time the word sex is thrown in to sell the most crappest of objects

      It was in reference to the portrayal of Pirates in the film pirates of the Caribbean, an example of two different ways the word “pirate” can be portrayed by Hollywood.

    I nearly soiled my screen/keyboard with tea when you were on about ‘fluids’!

    You should rename your show to “The Dr. Strangelove Audiocast”😎

      It just shows how much is going on in my life…I can’t for the life of me remember in what context we mentioned “fluids”….. I’ll have to listen to this episode again to remind myself!
