TuxJam 2

In this episode we take a brief look at Webconverger 8, Fuduntu 14.10 and DoudouLinux 1.0. These are followed by a more indepth look at Crunchbang Statler (XFCE edition).

The two applications in this episode are both desktop based, looking at PCManFM file manager and Turpial, a micro blogging client that works with identi.ca.

Feedback section: to my amazement I’ve had loads of really positive feedback from users on identi.ca, people were asking after a week when episode 2 was going to be released. A few people left feedback through IM, one person took the time to email the show: Andrew Conway (@mcnalu on identi.ca) gave me some nice feedback.

The tracks today were as follows:

  • Mad Mush – Silent Snowfall
  • OldSchool – Take It Easy
  • Tequila Mockingbird – Blue
  • Frank Camu – I Believe I’ll Dust My Broom
  • The GAP – Stay Away From Here
  • Retrosonic – Silent Prison (thanks to @richslxh on identi.ca for suggesting that one)
