The Technocracy

Who will win the Battle for your Desktop?

More on that later

Jono Bacon, Stuart Langridge, Chris Procter, and Adam Sweet talk about Linux, open source, and all manner of associated things. In this show we're talking about:

  • Starting out on your own: if you're thinking of setting up your own company working with technology or the web or open source, what do you need to do to make it successful? Is it possible to compete in the market as a one-man show? Is it just too risky? (1.19) [How can you make money running your own company? Tell us in the LugRadio forums]
  • The State Of the Mozilla: Firefox is the poster child for open source software, but are they forgetting their open-source base and not supporting the free desktop? There have been lots of accusations of this — is it actually the truth? Secondly, Mozilla's rendering engine, Gecko, seems to be losing the war for being an embedded engine to WebKit. Are people heading away from Mozilla's technology? (20.00) [What do you think of the Mozilla project's approach? Tell us in the LugRadio forums]
  • We announce that LugRadio will end at LugRadio Live UK this July, and talk about why the show's going out on a high. Tell us what you think: send us email or post on the forums (37.15)
  • If you could fix any problem in the open-source world what would it be? Thoughts on usability, modularisation, the web, and shared user accounts (44.15)
  • Your emails — this week you're talking about McGyver, gun control, power metal, freedom hatred at the FSF, other Linux podcasts that we think that you should be listening to, and LugRadio Live UK which is in less than a month! (73.40)
