Review: LINUX Unplugged – sterling Linux commentary

Last Updated on July 6, 2021

LINUX Unplugged Blurb

An open show powered by community LINUX Unplugged takes the best attributes of open collaboration and turns it into a weekly show about Linux.

About the Show

This show provides sterling commentary about Linux software, hardware, technology, and open source developments. There’s a wide spectrum of topics covered in each show covered without any toxicity.

Special guests on the show have included Martin Wimpress of Canonical, Dusty Mabe of RedHat, and Ilan Rabinovitch of DataDog.

The show notes offer hyperlinks to articles, stories, and web sites covered in each show. Timestamping of segments of the show would make a great addition.

The show is supported by advertising. We appreciate professionally produced podcasts like LINUX Unplugged need funding.

There is some strong language in the show, so it’s not really family friendly.

The show bills itself as an “open show”, while shows are recorded with REAPER, a full-featured proprietary digital audio workstation and MIDI sequencer software. Note, we’re not casting aspersions on the choice of REAPER, or proprietary software itself, or intimating open source digital audio workstations like Ardour are superior products to produce a podcast.
