I’m using my modern computers as if I were using them in 1989.  (It’s a weird idea.  See this episode for more details.)  This is how the experience has been roughly 36 hours in.  Overall… it’s kinda awesome.  No Social Media.  No push notifications.  I could really get used to this.

The way we interacted with our computers in 1989 was, in so many respects, fundamentally different than how we compute today.  Always connected to the Internet.  Push notifications.  Social Media.  These things simply weren’t around (not really and not for most of us) back in the late 80’s and early 90’s.  What would it be like to utilize my modern computing equipment with a set of restrictions designed to recreate that 1980’s experience?  Is thinking that it would be better simply viewing the past through rose-colored glasses?  Or would my productivity, an happiness, change as a result?  I’m going to find out.  For the next 30 days.

It’s Thursday!  And that can mean only one thing… Linux Day on the Lunduke Show!  Where you decide what we talk about… as long as it’s at least a little Linux-y!  This week we took a boat-load of hypothetical questions about Linux an the greater Open Source and Free Software worlds… and end by saying nice things about Microsoft, FreeBSD, an Mozilla.  Seriously.  This happened.

Microsoft is buying control of Linux.  At least as much as any one company can actually do.  They are purchasing (with big sacks of cash) influence over some of the most critical and high profile Linux and Open Source organizations on the planet.  Is this good?  Is this bad?  Is this a step on the road to “Embrace, Extend, Extinguish”?  I’ll leave that up to you to decide… but it’s definitely happening.

Earlier today (March 10th, 2018), Microsoft delivered the headlining keynote of the Southern California Linux Expo — one of the largest Linux and Free Software conferences in the world.  I repeat: Microsoft.  Headlined.  A Linux Festival.  It was confusing to many.  And Microsoft did not disappoint… they managed to say some distinctly anti-Open Source things in their 1 hour on stage.

This is the commentary track for Linux Sucks!  Huzzah!

Ways to get it:

Patreon – Become one of my monthly supporters on Patreon.com (at any level) and you can download the DRM-free video at your leisure.

Donate via PayPal – Pay what you want.  Name your price.  Toss me any amount you like (by clicking right here), and you’ll get an email with the DRM-free video.  Got a buck?  That’ll do.  Got a million?  Also perfectly acceptable.

Includes:

  • Behind-the-scenes stories about the 2016 Linux Sucks
  • Anecdotes about some of the guests that appeared in that years show
    • Richard Stallman
    • Piers Anthony
    • Cory Doctorow
    • Red Hat CEO Jim Whitehurst.

Normally I release my videos for free. Not this one.

I’m treating this as a sort of fund-raiser for future live events — like the next Linux Sucks, taking place at LinuxFest in April of 2018. The money raised by this commentary goes directly towards camera and recording equipment upgrades and travel expenses.

If you want to help with those things — or you are simply a Linux Sucks mega fan — you can pitch in a few bucks and get your copy from Patreon or PayPal.

Both options are great. Both options help support the show. Patreon is a bit better for you (as it also gives you access to the other Patreon perks like the monthly Q&A), but everything helps and is awesome.

Thank you for your support — I hope you enjoy the commentary!

It’s Thursday!  And that can mean only one thing… Linux Day on the Lunduke Show!  Where you decide what we talk about… as long as it’s at least a little Linux-y!  This week almost all of the questions were focused on how to build a career in Linux and Open Source.  Which, as luck would have it, we know a little something about.

Note: Lunduke’s audio gets a little quiet for a few moments in the later part of the show. For some reason the audio got auto-adjusted (it’s set to not do that… but the computer ignored our wishes). We caught it pretty quickly, luckily.
