We are back for a proper episode but Félim is on holiday so it’s a 3 man show. We’ve been to OggCamp, we discuss some developments in the mobile space, Ikey is off to New York on Shuttleworth’s dime, Joe has an ancient Mac and we talk about Patreon saturation.
Joe and Jesse briefly discuss their OggCamp Experiences.
Playing with old rubbish
Joe recently acquired an eMac that was destined for the rubbish tip. It turns out that getting Linux to run on it is more difficult than you might think.
This episode of Late Night Linux is sponsored by Entroware. They are a UK-based company who sells computers with Ubuntu and Ubuntu MATE preinstalled. They have configurable laptops, desktops and servers to suit a wide range of Linux users. Check them out and don’t forget to mention us at checkout if you buy one of their great machines.
Ikey has been on Destination Linux again
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?
