Title: Ignorance Predators

In this episode: Linux is now more popular than ever on the desktop (and on mobile). And thanks to 14 new Steam Machines announced by Valve at CES, it’s becoming a gaming behemoth. Red Hat is going to work closer with CentOS and the UK government’s ‘porn filter’ is filtering more than porn. Also in the show, we’ve got the longest ever ‘Finds of a Fortnight’, an ace Voice of the Masses and a special guest.

What’s in the show:

  • News:
  • Finds of the Fortnight (props to Cheerfultux for the name!):
    • Ben:
      • If you want to look like you’re working, when you’re not, open Hackertyper.com fullscreen.
      • Kali Linux, a distribution for penetration testing, is adding a self-destruct feature.
      • Android 4.x uses MTP as a transport protocol, but devices can be mounted using MTPFS.
      • The LinuxVoice server is on a floodplain.
    • Mike:
    • Nick:
      • Brackets is an awesome realtime HTML editor, worthy of an extra screen.
    • Graham:
      • Freezer shelves containing pipes coolant are actually easy to bend. So don’t be scared.
      • Get messages you’ve missed from an IRC channel using a bouncer proxy called Bip.
      • BBC iPlayer was accessed more by tablets than desktops for the first time this Christmas.
    • Andrew:
      • We may use the free font, Roboto, by Christian Robertson, for Linux Voice as it’s released under the Apache 2.0 licence.
  • Challenge the team to do something:
    • ^C ^C ^C
  • Vocalise Your Neurons:
    • Many apologies to Malcolm Cameron – his neurons arrived too late for us to use them in this podcast, but we’ll broadcast them next time. And if you want your neurons to be part of our next episode, email mike@linuxvoice.com.
  • Voice of the Masses: Is the “year of Linux on the desktop” question still relevant?

Presenters: Ben Everard, Andrew Gregory, Graham Morrison, Mike Saunders and Nick Veitch.
