  • Check out FLOSS Weekly 214: Simon Phipps and Dan talked to Michael Meeks and Charles-H. Schultz of LibreOffice
  • Fab wrote a feature on alternative desktop shells for Ubuntu on The H

  • Rob Houglan was inspired by Fab to release his ebook on the Kindle Store and licensed it under Creative Commons to boot
  • Neil Chapman has listened to the show for years and sends us a link to a page with quotes of the Iraqi ex-Information Minister Muhammed Saeed al-Sahaf
  • Florian sends us a link to a Lovecraftian comic with fishpeople and explains why Etherpad pulls in X on systems based on RHEL
  • Christopher (from fucking NASA) gives us the skinny on operating systems used on the ISS
  • Frank Vanhoof wrote us a long email on the Visual Studio situation we talked about earlier
  • Whym writes in with an opinion about Mac users and open source software
