New funding models

With the recent news that Disney is pulling (at least some of) its content from Netflix to start its own streaming service, we discuss how far a person’s budget can stretch. In a world where every company has a subscription service and every creator has a Patreon, can FOSS projects expect anything more than some beer money?

Late Night Linux – Call for OggCamp questions

Play

This isn’t a proper episode. It’s just Joe giving a very quick update on the OggCamp live show. It will be a joint effort with the Ubuntu Podcast and one of the sections will involve us answering your questions.

 

There are various ways you can ask a question. You can use the Google Form or you can use any of the methods from our contact page. It would be helpful if you used the hashtag #askogg

 

Your question doesn’t have to be about Linux or FOSS so you can ask us anything you like. We won’t have time to answer every question.

 

 

Hopefully see you there!

Linux as a Windows/Mac replacement

If someone is interested in switching to Linux, what distro or desktop would be the most suitable drop-in replacement? Perhaps that’s the wrong way to look at it and we should show them a world beyond their old experience.
