At 6pm pt, 7pm mt, 8pm ct, and 9pm et.... Kevin Hill, Jeff
Gerhardt, PJ Hyett, Doc Searls(Linux Journal), and Arne Flones have
a groundbreaking show lined up tonight on The Linux Show!! Only TWO
segments tonight because we have too much to cover.
In Segment One - The Linux Community Gets "Mundieized":
and tonight we respond!
Last Wednesday we were given a heads up by Eric Raymond about a
speech that was coming up by Craig Mundie of Microsoft, and Eric
predicted correctly that this would be the launch of one of the
most controversial attacks on Open Source yet launched by
Microsoft. To say Eric was right is one of the understatements of
We have purposely kept a low profile during the last week and
let the chips fall. A great deal of writing has been done over the
last few days to focus on the major issues developed by Microsoft's
new attack on Open Source. Tonight we are opening the mike to let
people respond in an open "uncensored" format. We will be joined
tonight by some of the people in the Linux/Open Source community
that have had some of the most profound responses to Mr. Mundie.
Among those participating include: Eric Raymond, Tom
Adelstein, Lyle Ball and (our own) Doc Searls. Check out
Doc's take on the matter here: http://doc.weblogs.com/stories/storyReader$715)
Tim Oreilly calls Doc's comments "the most cogent piece I've seen"
on the matter.
PLEASE NOTE: we have contacted Microsoft and have invited Craig
Mundie to join us on the show. At the time of this posting we have
not heard back from him.
In Segments Two- LOKI and the future of Linux
We have been looking forward to this segment for weeks. We want to
thank all the cooperation we have had from Loki to make this
segment possible. This is going to be a lot of FUN. Joining us
tonight from the LOKI team will be:
Scott Draeker, founder/president
Matt Carlson, programmer
Mike Phillips, qa/tech support guru
Sam Lantinga, lead programmer, who will be
calling in from his honeymoon (you would think he would have
something better to do).
We will be discussing :
- The future of Linux gaming
- The success of SMAC (LOKI's fastest-selling title EVER)
- Soon to be released titles: MindRover and Rune
- The NEW LOKI webstore
PLUS we will be having a LIVE
Tribes 2 On-line game tournament running. The Tribes server will be
up until midnight pacific time, and Kevin and Jeff will be playing
music and running an IRC server for the participants. This is what
we hope will be but the first fo these events that
will allow Linux geeks to gather together for a little fun and
