In this episode we take a brief look at FrugalWare Linux 1.5 RC1, FreeNAS 8.1 beta4, Aptosid 2011-02, SMS 1.61 and Pardus 2011.1. These are followed by a more indepth Look at Linvo GNU/Linux 2010.12.6, which was released on 13.07.11 despite it’s name.
On the Linux Desktop we look at WeeChat,
a lightweight and fast CLI chat client, that provides a wealth of
customization for power users. We take a look at two open source,
Android micro blogging applications; Zwitscher and Mustard.
TuxJam is now listed on Oggcasts.org and also gets a mention in the TINAP and Bugcast podcasts. Aswell as some feedback from Andrew Conway and Marie Axlesson.

The tracks today were as follows:

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)
