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.

  • 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?

Plus our hands on experience with the new release, the ultimate upgrade test results & community news.
