Summary: Second episode discussing Microsoft’s perception tactics against GNU/Linux with a plethora of other topics around this theme
THIS is the second part of a discussion about ways in which GNU/Linux adoption is being discouraged, with or without Microsoft’s direct involvement. Gordon, Tim, and Roy speaks about no article in particular this weekend; instead they concentrate on many examples from the past few years. Tim’s site, OpenBytes, will publish some show notes very shortly. We made no preparations for the shows, so notes are put together only after the discussion.
Today’s show ends with “SPARKLE” by Honey Sac (published in SXSW 2009 Showcasing Artists). Marti is working on a new intro for the show and we also hope to have him — as well folks from Mageia — on an imminent episode. We hope you will join us for future shows and spread the word if you enjoy this show. Also consider subscribing to the show via the RSS feed.
