TechBytes Audiocast – Episode 47 – 21/05/11 – “Unity love…”

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

Hosts: Tim (OpenBytes) Roy (Techrights)

Its Roy and myself today discussing all manner of topics relating to the world of Tech.

* Unity – We discuss my experiences and the views of others on the net, with consideration of “what exactly is a power user?”

* We talk about Bad Boy Ballmer and his view that Linux users won’t pay? – We consider that infact its the Windows users who are more likely to be after a freebie.

* Fedora 15 – A release to look forward to!

* Windows 8 – Just when you thought it was safe to put your wallet back in its pocket….buy buy buy! Windows 8 is coming…!

* Microsoft to buy Nokia – We discuss the rumour, but who cares anyway? – We also make mention of some claims of very poor WP7 sales.

* I mention “The Tunnel” a creative commons horror movie available on Vodo, free to download, free to share!

* Sci-Fi Fans will love the space sim “The Babylon Project” – Another great project to be excited about.

* Cloud computing – We discuss some pro’s and cons.

We also touch upon many other topics, including: Groklaw, Jo Wilcox and BetaNews, CNET.  All this and much more from the audiocast that even Wintroll’s promote!

Tracks today come from both myself and Roy.  You can find Roy’s selection on his show notes, whilst mine was “Amity we should give” by the band Amity In Fame.
