Podcast Season 2 Episode 21
Title: The one without Paul
In this episode: Ubuntu may ditch the X Window system for Wayland, Fedora 14 has been released and Nokia takes Symbian back from the Symbian Foundation. Share our fortnight's discoveries and hear whether we think Qt and KDE should merge APIs.
(we recorded this episode yesterday, before we knew about Paul's announcement).
What's in the show:
- Discovery of the week:
- Transports himself to 1979 with a port of Unix V7 to the PC, called V7/x86.
- The 'ls' command isn't shorthand for 'list', it's actually an acronym for 'list segments'.
- The Enlightenment Window Manager is very shiny and a mixture between really good and really rubbish.
- YouTube can be brilliant for certain DIY tasks, like fixing your Playstation 3 or dishwasher. This is not an endorsement if you have the same problems!
- You Dare Us:
- In the Hot Seat:
- Open Ballot: should KDE and Qt libraries merge?
