Linux Unplugged

An open show powered by community LINUX Unplugged takes the best attributes of open collaboration and focuses them into a weekly lifestyle show about Linux.
  • A game changing project for Linux multimedia has been officially announced today, so we chat with the brilliance behind PipeWire, Wim Taymans. Plus community news of the week & why the rapid decline of the “open source media” matters more than ever.

  • Audit your network with a couple of easy commands on Kali Linux. Chris decides to blow off a little steam by attacking his IoT devices, Wes has the scope on Equifax blaming open source & the Beard just saved the show. It’s a really packed episode!

  • The Gnome project is about to solve one of our audience's biggest Wayland’s concerns. But as the project takes on a new level of relevance, decisions for the next version of Gnome have us worried about the future. Plus we chat with Wimpy about the Ubuntu Rally in NYC, Microsoft’s sneaky move to turn Windows 10 into the “ULTIMATE LINUX RUNTIME”, community news & more!

  • We reflect on the communities appetites for another GNU/Linux phone fundraiser & pontificate if the Librem 5 might be our last hope. Plus a live unboxing of some new shiny surprise hardware. We also cover a batch of community updates, a cryptocoin you’re going to want & discuss additional options for offsite backup.

  • We get fired up about the bigger message behind Ubuntu’s new fork, debate Mozilla’s plans to collect data on Firefox users & come up with solutions for Linux users fleeing from CrashPlan. Plus a geeky project so cool it might consume your life, Google’s clever plans to push ChromeOS into the Enterprise & the one thing Electron should never be used for.

  • A new version of Solus is out and Ikey joins us to chat about whats new, building in Snap support & a peek at the future. Wimpy sets us on the straight and narrow about confinement & we have some follow up thoughts on Slackware. Plus some great desktop app picks, community news, Gnome’s birthday & more!

  • We conclude our Slackware challenge & share the lessons and results. Plus why you really need to give Firefox another try, easy sandboxing of any Linux app, GTK4’s blockers, the official anti-systemd resource... And we announce another meetup!

  • We get philosophical about open source’s most modern problem & debate where we draw our own personal “Stallman Line”. Plus a we briefly discuss today’s big Bitcoin fork, Mozilla’s new Firefox experiments, Krita’s woes, Gnome’s moves & the groundwork for the Slackware Challenge.

  • We get down to distros in today’s episode. Distro news, modular distros, some reviews & major new developments. Plus Chris talks about leaving Arch and returning to his distro-hopping roots & the major news that broke today.

  • We've chased Chris out of the studio and invented some new segments: First up Wes, in true TechSNAP style, highlights a few complicated ideas explained well, then it's on to updates from a few of our favorite projects, including some exciting news for WireGuard & a great collection of new stuff from around the internet. Plus special guest host Rikai & Wes geek out about gaming, we celebrate Slackware & pose the question: Just what is Mageia & why does it exist?

Friday the 22nd.
