  1. Hey Bryan awesome show, great guest (hey Aaron, you need to make Plasma active work on Allwinner A10). I noticed you changed up the format a little, I liked the other way better cause there was more cool theme music and 8-bit notes, but I can live with it this way. Oh and when the next "World of Linux" coming out and can you do a FreeBSD (I know, not Linux, but still a cousin) episode with Allan Jude, you two would be great together.

  2. KDE isn't going anywhere fast in mobile. The only reason people use Linux desktops is that they can install Ubuntu on a laptop they already own, and try Ubuntu before buying a machine with Linux preinstalled. The fact that Ubuntu is built on Cyanogenmod and runs on existing hardware is huge, because carriers and early adopters can experiment with Ubuntu mobile before making custom Vivaldi hardware. I disagree with Sergion at 36:41; you can write one HTML5 app and just change the form-factor CSS.

  3. For those that missed it yesterday afternoon…

    The latest episode of "World of Linux" is available for download and YouToooooobage!

    [Side Note: +1's and Re-shares would not be objected to.  Repeat.  *Not* objected to.]

  4. Cool interview, Aaron Seigo is one learned son of a bitch!

    Definitely preferred this format instead of having to watch the video and read the questions. Im too lazy – and retarded.

  5. Hey B Man have you given your reasoning for not leaving JB? Was it just time to go? I hope you and Chris are still cool. LAS just isn't the same without ya (loved those rants). Don't get me wrong, I really like the work you're doing now! 😀

  6. Behold!  "World of Linux" season 1, episode 2!
