Linux themed Cards Against Humanity expansion is out!

LinuxAgainstHumanityTeaser“Linux Against Humanity”, my Cards Against Humanity expansion pack is now available on my Patreon page!

It’s been released, DRM-free, under the Creative Commons license (the same license as Cards Against Humanity itself).

I’m also providing it in three different formats (small square, large rectangle and rounded rectangle) so that you can match it to your own card decks.

Want it?  You’ll need to be one of my patrons over at Patreon to download it directly from me.  Of course… it’s Creative Commons.  So there’s nothing stopping someone from posting it all over the Internet.  Which… is totally, 100% fine with me.  The cool people will still become my Patrons (even for a small amount) to support future goodies like this.

Oh, and this may go without saying, but you’ll need the main Cards Against Humanity deck.  You could play with *just* the Linux Against Humanity expansion set.  But it wouldn’t be nearly as fun… it’s really meant to add awesome Linux-y stuff to the main game.

Linux Against Humanity

In just a few short days, Linux Sucks: The Book will appear, as if by magic, to all of my Patreon supporters.

LinuxAgainstHumanityTeaserIn full DRM-free glory.

Accompanying this, most triumphant, moment in both Linux and literary history, will be something… special.

Something… unexpected.

Something… kinda stupid.

An expansion pack for Cards Against Humanity.  Entirely about Linux.

I call it, “Linux Against Humanity”.  And it’s important.

Now, we’ve already established that it would be “DRM-Free”.  But this is Linux.  Shouldn’t something like this also be released as Free and Open Source?  These cards may not be software… but considering they’re about Linux… wouldn’t it feel weird if they were “closed”?  Yes.  Yes it would.

So the cards are being released under the same license as Cards Against Humanity, itself.  The Creative Commons BY-NC-SA 2.0 license.

It will be released at the same time (and in conjunction with) my book, Linux Sucks: The Book — exclusively to those of you that support me via Patreon.  But, since it is CC BY-NC-SA 2.0, there’s no reason someone can’t just take the “Linux Against Humanity” files and distribute them however they like.  Which I am 103% cool with.

The release will be announced on and on my Patreon page.  (And probably on every social network I hang out on.)

“You have a weird business model there, Lunduke.”

“Yes.  Yes I do.”

Mr. Lunduke – Distro Collaboration w/Fedora, openSUSE & Ubuntu

I did another puppet video.  And, you know what?  I think I’m going to keep doing these “Mr. Lunduke” videos.  They’re fun.

This one, in particular, was rather cool.  “Mr. Lunduke” got to host a panel with the Fedora Project Lead (Matthew Miller), an Ubuntu Community Manager (Michael Hall) and the openSUSE Board Chairman (Richard Brown).  All there to talk about how the big distros currently work together and how they could work together better in the future.

Leaders from the three big Linux distros all together… in one spot (albeit virtually)… for the first time in history.

Seriously.  After the stop button was hit on the recording, it was revealed that these three, fairly high profile, leaders of the Linux world… had never actually met before.

Now they have.  Thanks to a puppet with a YouTube channel.

If you dig these videos… head to my Patreon page and become a patron — which lets me to do more.  My patrons get every new video first.  Naturally.

Mr. Lunduke – Mycroft, the Open Source artificial intelligence

The “Mr. Lunduke Show” has officially made it’s officially official debut!

In this first episode, Mr. Lunduke interviews the founder and CTO of the Mycroft project — an Open Source (and built on Open Hardware), voice controlled Artificial Intelligence device.

Think of it like the Amazon Echo.  Only Open Source and not tied to any one service.

Joining my panel for this episode:

Matt Hartley – Tech Journalist for Datamation and

Jack Wallen – Tech Journalist for Tech Republic and and author of many-a-zombie-book.

All future videos will be released to my Patreon page first — with the rest of the world needing to wait.

Because my patrons are awesome.  And smell nice.

Announcing Linux Sucks 2016 and… Linux Sucks: The Book!

Big announcements today!  Bigger than anything I’ve ever announced.  Bar none.

To start with…

“Linux Sucks” is coming to the Southern California Linux Expo!

For the last 6 years, the “Linux Sucks” presentations and videos have rocked Linux Fest NorthWest — with the most recent video in the series having been viewed nearly 1 million times by Linux and tech enthusiasts across the globe.

And, while Linux Fest NorthWest has been an absolutely spectacular venue… it’s time to take this show on the road!

This coming January (Jan 21 – 24, 2016 to be precise), “Linux Sucks” will hit Pasadena, California and the Southern California Linux Expo (aka “SCALE”)!

Not only can this new venue accommodate a much larger audience (we, literally, had people hanging outside the windows during the last one) but, for the first time…

“Linux Sucks” is going to be professionally filmed and released on major streaming services!

That’s right.  No more shaky cam.  No more poor audio quality.  I’m pulling out all the stops.  We’re talking multiple cameras.  All HD.  And high-quality, professional grade audio.  And filmed entirely by a, professional, local film crew.  This is going to be a Linux event and comedy show (let’s be honest, that’s kinda what it is) like nobody has ever seen before.

To go along with that, “Linux Sucks 2016” will, for the first time, not be available on YouTube.

Say waaaaaaa?!

You read that right.  The next Linux Sucks is going to be something special.  And, as such, will be made available first to my Patreon patrons — in all its DRM-free, HD, multiple-format glory.  After those subscribing to my Patreon get to fully enjoy it — and gloat about the fact that the rest of the world has to wait for it — “Linux Sucks 2016” will then be released onto multiple, major video streaming services.

You read that right.  A comedy show about Linux.  On the major video streaming services.  Right on your TV.  How crazy is that?

If you aren’t already planning to attend the Southern California Linux Expo — and you can find some way to make it there — I highly recommend it.  Not only is it an amazing conference, but this is going to be your chance to show your friends and family a comedy show about Linux — on one of the multiple streaming services they already use every day — where you are right there in the audience.  Words cannot express how cool this is.

“Linux Sucks: The Book”

As amazing as this is, it does mean that we all have to wait another 4 months for a live version of “Linux Sucks”.  What to do in the meantime?

LinuxSucksTheBookWell, as luck would have it, I’ve been working on something… a little bit different.

Linux Sucks: The Book.

This is exactly what it sounds like.  A full book — chock full of diagrams, info-graphics and essays — on why Linux Sucks so very badly (spoiler: it doesn’t actually suck).

And it will be released via my Patreon page on Thursday, October 8th 15th.  (Moved out 1 week to give me time to get the ePub formatting right.)

Because this is me, the book will be available in the following formats:

  • ePub
  • PDF
  • Open Document Format (so you can convert it to whatever other format you wish)
  • And a complete audio book version in both MP3 and Ogg formats

All, of course, DRM free.  But, and I can’t stress this enough, it will only be made available to my Patreon subscribers.  Even the lowest level pledges get full access to everything.  And the funds that are raised through my Patreon page go into making Linux Sucks 2016 even bigger and better.

See you all in Pasadena in January!
