Linux Outlaws 365 – Last Stand

November 3rd, 2014


After over seven years, the Linux Outlaws journey will come to an end in December and we explain how and why

Dan and Fab announce that they will end the show by the end of the year and explain their reasoning for this decision. They also discuss the potential outcomes of this and their plans for the future.

As it stands, Linux Outlaws will come to an end before Christmas of this year with episode 370.


Please tell us what you want us to do for our remaining five episodes via email, in the Saloon and on Twitter with the hashtag #OutlawsLastStand. We are also interested to hear from you about the end of the show in general and what your favourite moments were in over seven years of Linux Outlaws.

Please note: OggCamp will continue; the event is in no way affected by the end of the show.
