1×64: Windows Subsystem for Podcasts

1×64: Windows Subsystem for Podcasts

Posted by on Thursday, April 7, 2016 in Development, Linux, News, Open Source, Reviews, Shows, Technology, Ubuntu | 0 comments

Jono Bacon, Jeremy Garcia, Bryan Lunduke, and Stuart Langridge bring you Bad Voltage, in which there is a great deal of disagreement about Microsoft’s motives and Canonical’s motives and our motives, and some of us mock other podcasters because we hate the community, and also:

  • 00:02:01 Microsoft and Canonical release the “Windows Subsystem for Linux” at MS’s Build developer conference to provide the Ubuntu command line on Windows. What’s that all about, then? Bash in cmd.exe? This sounds like a good idea, right? What does it mean?
  • 00:32:17 Jono reviews the iRig Pro “all-in-one audio/MIDI interface for Apple products that fits in your pocket”
  • The OpenShot project have just released the latest version of their video editor in AppImage format; a single downloadable file which runs on every Linux OS and doesn’t need to be unpacked or installed. With tools like this and Gnome’s xdg-app in the wings, whither the old Linux model of “distributions” and packaging every app half a dozen times? Can this discussion get beyond complaints about static linking or the difficulty of releasing Linux software?

Also, Bryan is speaking at LinuxFest Northwest in Bellingham, USA on April 23rd/24th 2016, and Stuart is at Fosstalk in London, UK on August 6th with other Linux podcasters, if you want to buy them drinks or expensive laptops or something!
