Podcast Season 1 Episode 3

Title: Something’s brewing

In this episode: There’s lots of new Ubuntu goodness and a fresh version of Firefox. Debian is to dump its old boot scripts and OwnCloud gets closer to replacing Google Docs. Ben’s writing a book and Solus OS is no more. Plus, we’ve got discoveries, brains neurons, a ballot and… one, more, thing.
