Kevie and mcnalu have entered into the Christmas mood and recorded this show with sporrans wrapped in tinsel and kilts decked with holly (externally only). First up it’s the usual round up of lesser known GNU/linuxes on distrowatch. Next they recount their experiences with Peppermint Linux 7 and Kevie concentrates his attention on site specific browers (SSBs) with ICE .
Kevie and mcnalu return after a lengthy summer recess, having been driven back to their keyboards by the first chill of winter to record TuxJam 52 on Hallowe’en. Your hosts kick off with the usual roundup of eclectic linuxes on distrowatch. They then recount experiences installing SteamOS with and without its eponymous controller, and, after the tiniest bit of arm twisting, use it to play games. Then comes the terror of the malfunctioning screencast software. Whereas Andrew is haunted by failure, Kevie fearlessly fights on to review all of: OBS, Simple Screen Recorder, Byzanz, GTK RecordMyDesktop, Kazam, Vokoscreen and DeathScribe… sorry DeskScribe. We end with nice bit of feedback from musician Asha Lightbearer who we featured in a previous TuxJam and send our best wishes to the LinuxVoice chaps as they move, or rather merge, onto pastures new.
Kevie and mcnalu are settling TuxJam into its new home on this site. First up is the roundup of lesser known but interesting linuxes on distrowatch. Both hosts have, as promised, taken NixOS for a spin. It’s an interesting distro which offers a new take on Linux package management. We then review two apps which help stream radio and other audio content to your phone or tablet: ServeStream and RadioDroid. We end with a roundup of feedback, including an apology for only belatedly noticing @inscius‘s recommendation of us trying a wee dram – not of a whisky, but of Swedish folk music that sounds somewhat Scottish.
