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.
Why we think Apple just handed market share to Desktop Linux, and why you can kiss running Linux on the Mac goodbye forever.
It's time to challenge some long-held assumptions. Today's Btrfs is not yesterday's hot mess, but a modern battle-tested filesystem, and we'll prove it. Plus our thoughts on GitHub dropping the term "master", and the changes Linux should make NOW to compete with commercial desktops.
The lightweight distro that stole our hearts, the four of us each try out a different contender and come away with what we think will be the leanest and meanest distribution for your PC.
From the low-end to the high-end we try out both ends of the Linux hardware spectrum. Wes reviews the latest XPS 13, and Chris shares his thoughts on the Pinebook Pro.
Chris' tale of woe after a recent data loss, and Wes' adventure after he finds a rogue device on his network.
Windows is getting more competitive by adopting core Linux features, so we cover the latest Linux-inspired additions to Windows. Then review the new release of Pi-hole, sort through recent PINE64 updates, and read your feedback.
We're blown away by the Enlightenment desktop, and its little known features, and we share a quick way for you to try it out yourself.
Manjaro has a new hardware partner so Phillip joins to share the details, and we have the Lemur Pro in house for a battery endurance test like no other.
Fedora Project Leader Matthew Miller joins us to discuss Lenovo shipping ThinkPads loaded with Fedora, and our review of the new 32 release.
The latest Ubuntu LTS is here, but does it live up to the hype? And how practical are the new ZFS features? We dig into the performance, security, and stability of Focal Fossa.
We build the server you never should, a tricked out Arm box, and push it to the limit with a telnet torture test.
Today we make nice with a killer, an early out-of-memory daemon, and one of the new features in Fedora 32. We put EarlyOOM to the test in a real-world workload and are shocked by the results.
We discover a few simple Raspberry Pi tricks that unlock incredible performance and make us re-think the capabilities of Arm systems.
We debate the dangers and advantages of one-click deployments. Then Dan from elementary OS shares an AppCenter for Everyone update.
It was the first of its kind, and the first forced to go virtual. We get the behind the scenes story of WSL Conf from the organizers.
We load up Windows 10 with WSL2, the new Terminal, and give it a go to see what it does better than Linux. Then we dive into the deep end and attend the first-ever WSLConf.
We try the Mac desktop for 30 days, find out what we think it does best, and where Linux will always have it beat.
A radical new way to do SSH authentication, special guest Jeremy Stott joins us to discuss Zero Trust SSH.
We question the very nature of Linux development, and debate if a new approach is needed.
