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

Hosts: Tim (OpenBytes) Roy (Techrights)

Summary: A reasonably short episode covering Torvalds’ GNOME remarks and various other bits of news

LAST NIGHT we returned to recording after almost two weeks off. We caught up with some news about desktop environments and other such GNU/Linux-oriented topics.

The show includes “Sorry, Baby” by Dan Dyer and “Paganini: Cantabile” by Volodja Balzalorsky, which closes the show.

We also managed to cover:

Diaspora / Google + – and a discussion on social networking/privacy.

Moving from Gnome to Xfce – a look at some recent comments and the general opinion of Gnome Shell as well as a brief mention about Unity.

* Linux gaming and the indi scene

As well as a selection of creative commons music and a mish-mash of sidetracks and tangents.
