Podcast Season 2 Episode 12
Title: Barone von München
In this episode: Russia is going to build its own PC systems and its own Linux-based operating system. Ardour needs some cash. OwnCloud 7 is on the horizon and Krita is doing quite well. We’ve got a special guest, five discoveries and an excellent Voice of the Masses. All from wonderful Germany.
Many apologies for the distortion on Florian’s microphone. This was caused by a problem with our USB interface whilst recording on battery power.
What’s in the show:
State departments and state-run companies in Russia are going to switch to domestically produced Baikal CPUs instead of those from AMD and Intel and switch to Linux as their operating system. Ardour, the open source digital audio workstation, needs more funding if it’s to keep its founding developer, Paul Davis, working on the project full time. There’s a beta release of OwnCloud 7 with lots of lovely new features. The Krita kickstarter campaign has reached €14,000 with 9 days to go. And the former editor of Linux User & Developer has launched a new weekly podcast focusing on the Raspberry Pi, called Raspberry Pi Today.
