That was a nice interview. Cool to hear a positive story of people coming to Linux amongst all the worry of ChromeOS and the WSL siphoning away new users. I have said it before but I still appreciate the work you put into finding interviews and other off beat topics. It helps set the show apart. Over the past few weeks, the overlap amongst the different Linux shows has been especially large (the news items for this episode were almsot the same as the list for this week’s LAN for which I don’t fault Joe — the stories he finds interesting for the week aren’t going to change between shows, but the other hosts should step up and find some new items). I skipped a couple of my regular shows (but not LNL) because I had heard the topics enough already (the shows I listen to that overlap are LAN, LNL, Ubuntu Podcast, Bug Report, Bad Voltage, Destination Linux, and Ask Noah).
