An open show powered by community LINUX Unplugged takes the best attributes of open collaboration and turns it into a weekly show about Linux.

We're joined by two guests who share their insights into building modern Linux hardware products. Plus we try out Mint 20, cover some big Gnome fixes, and a very handy open source noise suppression pick! Special Guests: Alfred Neumayer, Brent Gervais, Drew DeVore, and Jeremy Soller.
