Jeremy Garcia, Bryan Lunduke, Jono Bacon, and Stuart Langridge present Bad Voltage, in which we celebrate our completed first year of the show by not actually doing anything celebratory. We also discuss:

  • Debian agreed to ship systemd as default and now people are talking about forking the whole distribution. The question is: at what point is it right to fork a distro? (2.45)
  • Bryan reviews ChromeOS on the Chromebook Pixel and explains how someone who doesn’t like requiring an internet connection deals with a laptop which does (16.27)
  • Wrong in 60 Seconds: the first of a new regular feature where one of us steps onto the soapbox for one minute. For this inaugural Wrong in 60 Seconds, Stuart talks about choice (32.58)
  • We speak to Guy Martin, senior open source strategist in Samsung’s open source group, about what open source means to Samsung and what it’s like influencing things inside such a huge organisation (34.32)
  • Technology is increasingly being used to help connect people after recent or alert you of upcoming natural disasters or extreme weather conditions. We look at the existing approaches and suggest some new ones. (50.59)
