Ask Lunduke is a weekly podcast where the community can ask any question they like… and I (attempt to) answer them.

This episode of Ask Lunduke is available two ways:

  • At Patreon, to all Patrons of The Lunduke Journal.

  • At LBRY, for a small cost in LBC.

Topics on Ask Lunduke this week:

  • If you had a magic button that would swap all Free Software for Proprietary… and all Proprietary for Free Software… would you?

  • Why is modern software so bloated?

  • Would you rather live in a home with no power, or a home where everything imaginable is an Internet of Things device, and you can't deactivate them or block their signal?

  • What's the best OS almost nobody has heard of?

  • Recommendations on Free or Open Source Software licenses for Web Applications?

Unlike the regular articles and episodes produced for free here at The Lunduke Journal, “Ask Lunduke” is only available to folks who subscribe to The Lunduke Journal on Patreon. Something a little extra. A way of saying “Thank You” for the support that the hundreds and hundreds of subscribers give.

Patreon supporters gain access to the weekly “Ask Lunduke”, and get the ability to ask questions directly. Plus a quarterly, DRM-free PDF collection of articles published here at The Lunduke Journal. Check out the Patreon page for more details.

A huge thanks to the hundreds of supporters that use Patreon and help make everything at The Lunduke Journal possible! Couldn't do it without ya!

“Ask Lunduke” is replacing the long-running “Linux Thursday” show. If you enjoyed Linux Thursday, you'll dig Ask Lunduke.
