Linux @ Work #1 – Linus is an asshole

Episode 1 is complete and the format moving forward has been decided. We intend to produce the podcast bi-weekly with a catch-up on the news relevant to professional usage of Linux and occasionally intersperse deep dive episodes focused on a particular topic including reviews, tips and tricks.

In episode 1 we look into Google’s changes to ChromeOS making it easier to boot alternative operating systems, Linus Torvalds’ latest inflammatory comments, interesting ideas on using SSH to secure the world, open source making inroads in Europe, LibreOffice for Android, learning systemd and the recently disclosed Ghost vulnerability in glibc.

We look forward to hearing your ideas and feedback. You can always comment on episodes here or contact us through Twitter, Google+ or in our subreddit.

Links to the stories referenced will be posted shortly on our Shaarli site. For now, why not give it a listen?

About Chester Wisniewski

With more than 20 years as a professional working with Linux/Unix with a focus on security it is fair to say I am very focused on my narrow area of nerdom. In the last few years I have discovered my love of sharing my knowledge and doing my best to help others make their way in the free open source world and stay as private and secure as they can be.
