Hello World!

Since I couldn't fill it all out on my Bio, here it is...

I'm a computer geek with a musical flare. I have a love for technology old and new, a love for music, and most importantly, a love for my wonderful family.

I was the co-host of a podcast called Linux Basement which is no more. You can find old episodes on The Internet Archive.

You can also find my contributed episodes on Hacker Public Radio under my name or my handle, ClaudioM.

While on distro-talk: I set my mom up with #UbuntuMate, dual booting on her Macbook, and she loves it, and uses it for most of her computing. She says the interface runs well and was easy to navigate and figure out. That says great things about Ubuntu Mate, and I'm proud of her for going for it, even though she's not a techie.

I detect a slight problem with Kickstarter. From a consumer perspective, I feel like my $50 as a for Bards Tale IV is as good as anybody else's $50. But I don't I get the game on release day?

I get it. They test and release for Win, and then the others. But still, the result is that my donation feels less worthy than a Windows user's donation.

Maybe setting expectations early would be worth while? Or make sure your non-Win *beta* gets released the same day as Win release?

The Four Essential Freedoms

— The freedom to run the program as you wish, for any purpose.
— The freedom to study how the program works, and change it.
— The freedom to redistribute copies so you can help others.
— The freedom to distribute copies of your modified versions to others.

In this week's Gnu World Order, I review Lutris, the open gaming platform, and I talk about learning new tech by comparing Fossil and Git.
