TuxJam 80 – Uncivil but free

In this episode Kevie and Andrew are delighted to be joined by Ken Fallon. Dave was MIA but will return. After the usual round-up of lesser-known releases on distrowatch, Ken and Andrew discuss their experience at FOSDEM 2020 and the stand they ran for the nascent Free Culture Podcasts project along with other Hacker Public Radio stalwarts Beni and JWP. Andrew’s sort-of-live-off-the-cuff thoughts on his first FOSDEM can be heard in HPR show 3010. Andrew and Kevie press gang Ken into looking at the FOSS Civ-V-like game Unciv and rather unique application Track & Graph.
