Title: The Fellowship of the Ring

In this episode: Fedora 20 is out. A beta of SteamOS has been released and OwnCloud 6 comes out of beta. We’ve got some great discoveries, a real challenge report and the hugely enjoyable Voice of the Masses. Plus, we’re joined by a special mystery guest.


Many thanks to the White Hart Inn, Calne, for allowing us to record the podcast in their pub (and for turning off Sade).

What’s in the show:

    There have been many awesome releases over the last couple of weeks: Fedora 20 has been released, and makes ARM7 a primary architecture. A beta version of SteamOS, the gaming operating system put together by Valve, has been released. OwnCloud 6 has also been released, and includes document editing ‘in the cloud’. Google’s takeout now includes mbox as an export format for GMail. South Korea may switch to Ubuntu after the EOL of Windows XP. Munich has successfully completed its transition to Linux. And Linux Voice hits its 90k target.
