Title: Batting for freedom
In this episode: KDE 4.7 has been released and it's awesome. Microsoft and SUSE reaffirm their their patent vows and Chrome is now the most popular browser in the UK. We discover some cool things, write our own Linux jingles and discuss what Linux might look like in ten years.
What's in the show:
You Dare Us:
KDE SC 4.7 has been released. You can find lots of screenshots and more information here.
Microsoft and SUSE renew their
patent pact interoperability agreement. And Google's Chrome browser has overtaken Mozilla Firefox use in the UK.
- Discovery of the week:
- The author of a Twitter client called Schizobird has now given his application a sensible name, Poly.
- The Exult Ultima VII engine has almost reached version 1.5, and it's perfect for 24 hour delays in intercontinental travel.
Speak Your Brains:
We all did it again (almost)! Listen to our jingles for a Linux boot sound and hear us think of something for the next episode.
