Tonight Live: Desktop Distro Standards, do we need them?
>> on The Linux Show!!
At 6pm pt, 7pm mt, 8pm ct, and 9pm et.... Kevin Hill, Arne Flones, Doc Searls, Russ Pavlicek AND Jeff Gerhardt are all back live tonight. We have a very different show lined up for tonight.
Segment One- The News. We will cover THE HOT NEWS of the week including: Gates Spew, Linux Tablet PCs, and a clueless pundit or two........ and way more.
Segment Two- Desktop Linux Distros, do we really need a
standard one?- What is Bruce up to this time???
Tonight we are going to have our old friend Bruce Perens on the show. We are going to discuss the effort by Bruce and a number of folks in creating a universal Desktop Distro of the Linux Kernel. This concept was announced a month ago at a Desktop Linux conference where he announced the creation of userlinux.com/. You may also want to read about another similar effort at http://freedesktop.org/~jg/roadmap.html
Advance disclaimer. Some of us at TLS are not sold on this idea. That is why we thought it fair to invte Bruce and have him sell us on the idea. Please note that although we may not be convinced yet does not mean this is an adversarial situation. There is room for disagreements from time to time even with riends.
If you are in a band or represent an artist, please contact us ASAP to be added to our play list.
