Marcel’s Comments on Tonight’s Topics:

This should be interesting. I’m writing this message from one of the two new distributions I’m featuring on tonight’s show. I’m even writing it on a live DVD, so we’ll see if you get this.

Wine : French Chardonnay, Yvon Mau (and maybe a single malt Scotch)
Movies . . . went to see Age of Ultron : lots of good fodder for talking about computers taking over the world

A $9 computer system that runs Linux. Yes, $9. Nine.

Distributions : this one is called KaOS — the other is Netrunner. We’ll talk about why they’re great or why they should be considered on the show. Hint, I’m shopping for a new distribution. Yes, again.

Business Linux : We never got around to this last time, but we’ll give it another try. Converting a Microsoft SQL Server database application to Oracle running under Linux.

Games : board games . . . no, seriously.

Instant messagin with a focus on Security (with a capital S)

 – Linux powered rifle goes bang
 – Edward Snowden’s Linux
 – more why DRM is bad, featuring John Deere
 – other various tidbits, rumours, random bits from the Linux world
