Tonight LIVE on www.thelinuxshow.com

At 6pm pst, 7pm rmt, 8pm cst, and 9pm east.... Kevin Hill, Jeff Gerhardt, PJ Hyett, Doc Searls(Linux Journal), and Arne Flones have another great show lined up tonight on The Linux Show!!

In Segment One - Hot News: We will be covering the hot Linux news of the week. In particular we will talk about the recent story by John Taschek at ZD Net and how it sure seems John is trying more to make the news than report on it. In Segments Two- Agenda Computing: and the VR3 PDA (way cool)
We will be joined by Brad LaRonde, President and CEO (and CTO) of Agenda Computing (think this guy may have too much to do?). Brad co-founded the Linux VR project and leads the development team at Agenda.

The mission of Agenda is to bring users a new family of powerful and portable Linux computers at affordable prices (we all like that). Agenda's vision is to deliver all the things users have come to expect in a handheld device on an exciting computing platform that's packed with the CPU power, the memory and the storage needed to handle desktop-class applications.

Each Agenda VR3 and VR3r is loaded with unique software and hardware features like 16MB of Flash memory (hint- flash eliminates the problem of data loss associated with RAM-based units), something unheard for a list price of $249. It also supports 7 languages, is e-mail compatible, and will send a memo or message to a printer by wireless infrared transfer. Jeff has been working with the VR3 for the last couple days, and has a number of personal observations about the product, including a report about his 10 year old daughter Elizabeth and her interaction with the VR3.

In Segments Three- The Loki Announcement:
Joining us Two weeks from tonight will be Scott and the rest of the Loki crew for their third visit to The Linux Show. But tonight we are making a special announcement about something very very cool that we will be doing during that show. You do not want to miss that announcement.

Remember tune in at 6pm pst, 7pm rmt, 8pm cst, and 9pm est.
