Tonight LIVE on www.thelinuxshow.com
Note: we are experiencing severe rain here in the Chicago
Burbs. Flash floods all around the area. It is possible we may have
to canel tonights show and bail out our basements. We will keep an
update on our site.
At 6pm pt, 7pm mt, 8pm ct, and 9pm et.... Kevin Hill, Jeff
Gerhardt, Doc Searls (Linux Journal), Arne Flones and Russ
Pavlicek; have another strange and wonderful show lined up tonight
on The Linux Show!!
Segment One- The News. We will cover
THE HOT NEWS of the last few weeks tonight. In
particular, Phat Linux 4.0 and the big news on IBM and The German
Segment Two- United Linux and ain't it amazing
how it seems to divide us.
Tonight we debate the issue of UnitedLinux, the common Linux
distro announced last Thursday by Linux distro companies; Caldera,
SuSE, Conectiva and Turbolinux. These four came together and
announced a new combined distro called UnitedLinux. The four
companies will pool resources to create a single Linux distribution
focused on the business server market. The four companies will be
free to bundle their own software with the distribution to add
value to the generic distribution. Furthermore, other Linux
companies are free to join the effort.
There has been a firestorm of controversy since the
announcememnt, with most of the usual Linux and Open Source pundits
chiming in, including the article by our own Russel Pavlicek at
The controversy rages on, including with differing opinions by the
panel here at TLS. SO, we will debate the issue during segment 2 of
tonights show. There is a HUGE difference of opinion on the panel
for this, so this is going to be a great segment. Make sure that
you also read the article at Linux and Main quoting
RMS and his issues with comments by some of the United Linux
founders, associated with per seat licensing.
We have invited people from SuSE and Caldera to join us tonight
and put in their 2 cents as well.
Please join us on the show, and check our IRC
Remember tune in at 6pm pt, 7pm mt, 8pm ct, and 9pm et. NOTE: we
are now on Daylight Saving Time in the US.
