TuxJam 74 – Every Rosa Has It’s Thorn

We return to a full strength trio with Kevie  rejoining Dave (ask thelovebug) and Andrew (aka mcnalu) for another helping of free and open source goodness washed down with Creative Commons licensed tunes.

We begin with our usual look at quirkier releases on distrowatch.com and then recount our experiences with Russian Linux distro called Rosa, originally a Mandriva fork, but now a distro in its own right. NOTE: this other Rosa Linux site offers only older versions than the recently released version 11, which caused us some confusion. We then discuss our experiences with KDE music player Elisa. Finally we have our roundup of feedback and mention of this year’s Podcrawl Glasgow which is on the last Saturday in July.
