Title: Calcio Storico

In this episode: Linux Foundation is spending some cash to improve security for everyone. Crossover is going to run the latest Windows games. DuckDuckGo is becoming a hugely successful search engine and there’s a new Ubuntu Phone. We’ve got an awesome Finds section, we peer into someone’s neurons and finish up with a feel-good Voice of the Masses.

What’s in the show:

  • News:
    • Linux Foundation invests (almost) half a million dollars in security projects. Crossover announces upcoming support for Direct X 11. DuckDuckGo surpasses 10 Million daily queries (600% growth since the Snowden revelations). Chromium has been secretly downloading a binary blob that listens to the input from your microphone. A new Ubuntu Phone goes on sale today – the much more powerful €299 Miezu MX4. And there’s a new Open Container Project, where Docker, Linux Foundation, Amazon, Microsoft, VMware etc. have decided to create a standard for containers.

  • Finds of the Fortnight:
    • From our #linuxvoice IRC channel on Freenode:
      • <Stilvoid> YAML is a great balance between human readability and machine parsability, and a subset of JSON.
      • <mcphail>One thing I found (which everyone else probably knows already) is a trick for typing repeated characters. If you need, for example, 80 “*” chars in a row you can type “Alt-80″ then “*”.
    • Mike:
    • Graham:
      • An awesome keyboard driven browser called ‘qutebrowser‘.
      • You can subvert your home alarm system with a Raspberry Pi.
    • Ben:
      • Danger: btrfs uses a partition to store metadata. And when that’s full, your storage is full.
    • Andrew:
      • This is real football.
  • Vocalise Your Neurons:
    • Thanks Jan! If you’d like yours read out next time, email them to mike@linuxvoice.com.
