In this episode: Debian is going to switch to Gnome. Native Netflix is coming to Ubuntu. Minecraft has been sold and TrueCrypt comes back from the dead. We’ve got lots of great finds, a long discussion about FOSS events and an extra-special guest.

Android applications can now be made to work on Linux, sort of. And one of Valve’s major titles, Counter Strike: Major Offensive, has been released for £11.99 on Steam, for Linux.
