TuxJam 35

Cover2We start, as always, with a review of recent but less well-known releases on distrowatch.com. We then review Neptune OS 4.1 – a KDE GNU/Linux distribution with Debian underpinnings and a pleasing array of multimedia applications, particularly for audio. (By sheer bad lack, it turns out that Neptune OS 4.2 was released just after we recorded the podcast on 24 Oct 2014.) We then discuss a lighter-weight alternative to Audacity called MHWaveEdit that both Kevie and Andrew (aka McNalu) have used to edit other podcasts they’ve recorded. We finish up by discussing feedback we’ve received since the last show.

We are delighted that all the music used on this show came from listeners’ suggestions, and bemused that one suggestion has come from a bot. We’ve still got more to use, so be patient if your suggestion hasn’t been included yet.
