TuxJam 90 – Rocking it Retro

Andrew, Dave and Kevie are enjoying cake, jelly and ice cream as TuxJam turns 10 years old. With a look back to the first episode we look at the distro that has replaced SimplyMepis: MX Linux. To our amazement, the lightweight music player Pogo is still being maintained and we do another review ten years down the line. We look ahead to the upcoming Podcrawl which will take place on Saturday 26th July at 6pm (UK time), keep an eye on the Podcrawl page for the video conference link (available nearer the time).

MX Linux 19.4.1 (XFCE)

The creative commons tracks are all from bands that were played during the first five episodes and should give the seasoned listener a feeling of Jamendo nostalgia.

Kevie is from the Outer Hebrides, in the north west of Scotland,UK. He started podcasting with TuxJam back in 2011 and followed this by co-hosting tech-themed, discussion show Crivins along with Gordon Sinclair. A full time Linux user, currently using Debian as his distro of choice, and a keen promoter of unknown artists/bands, especially those who release their music under a Creative Commons license, this led Kevie to starting the CCJam community podcast. Always keen to spread the word on Creative Commons music and open source projects, Kevie has appeared as a guest on the Bugcast, Hacker Public Radio, Music Manumit Podcast, Rathole Radio and TINT.
