28: What We Love About Linux

28: What We Love About Linux

2020-02-0600:28:261

Valentine's Day is nearly here so it's time to talk about why we love Linux and open source. Nothing is perfect though, so we also touch on a few areas that we feel could be improved.
Distrohoppers serves up something very different in the form of desktop BSD, and we reveal how important freedom is to us all.
Trying to explain what Linux and open source are can be tricky. We discuss our various approaches, and how they differ depending on the experience of who we are explaining them to.
25: Tails + Virtualization

25: Tails + Virtualization

2019-12-2600:29:471

Ultimate privacy in Distrohoppers, and the best ways to run other operating systems within your current Linux distro.
All three of us have different levels of experience with Linux but there are tons of things that we wish we'd learned earlier in our journey. From gatekeeping to community culture, command line tricks to backups, and more.
A chance to learn some Linux fundamentals in Distrohoppers, and the numerous ways we can all contribute to Linux and open source.
22: Finding Your Community

22: Finding Your Community

2019-11-1400:28:20

We talk about the best ways to get involved in open source communities, finding like-minded people, conference strategies, community hubs, and what happened to all the LUGs.
There are numerous ways to install software on a modern Linux system and we each have a different approach. Plus a lean and focused KDE experience in DistroHoppers.
20: Single Board Computers

20: Single Board Computers

2019-10-1700:26:17

We are joined by special guest Chz who is a long-time user of single board computers to talk about how we use boards like the Raspberry Pi, Orange Pi, and ROCKPro64. Special Guest: chzbacon.
We have three different approaches to using the cloud, so we discuss various ways to expand your Linux knowledge beyond the desktop. Plus Distrohoppers delivers a mobile-like experience that splits opinion.
There's lots to consider when setting someone up with Linux for the first time. User needs and expectations, distro choice, hardware, and so much more. We discuss our experiences, and ask some fundamental questions.
Getting into hardware hacking with Arduino, and analysing sleep data from CPAP machines. Plus a glimpse into the past in Distrohoppers.
16: PCLinuxOS + Hugo

16: PCLinuxOS + Hugo

2019-08-2200:30:01

We check out a great tool for learning web development basics, and Distrohoppers brings us mixed experiences. Plus which of the 10 commandments for Linux users we agree with.
15: OBS Studio + Endless OS

15: OBS Studio + Endless OS

2019-08-0800:30:46

Distrohoppers delivers a distro that divides us, and we check out the video streaming and recording software OBS Studio. Plus a handy audio recorder that's as simple as it gets.
We take a look at the continuation of Antergos called Endeavour OS and are pretty impressed, and Distrohoppers delivers an interesting distro that's obsessed with cats. Plus the only way to watch YouTube videos on Android.
13: Qubes OS + Plex vs Kodi

13: Qubes OS + Plex vs Kodi

2019-07-1100:27:58

Distrohoppers brings us up a fascinating distro where every application runs in its own VM. Plus Drew and Joe disagree on the best media solution.
Two new hosts join Joe to talk about a nice i3 implementation and an amazing arcade game written in Bash. Plus a new segment called Distrohoppers, and a useful hidden feature of GNOME.
11: Zorin OS 15 + LineageOS

11: Zorin OS 15 + LineageOS

2019-06-1300:29:24

Zorin OS is described as “a powerful desktop you already know how to use.” It’s elegant, beginner-friendly and looks beautiful, too. Should we be paying more attention to it? Then in another first, Jason installs his first alternative mobile OS, and Joe gives advice on getting the most out of LineageOS. Unfortunately we end the episode by saying goodbye to Jason as he moves on to pursue several independent projects, but the show will go on with the same spirit of discovery and newness!
10: BTW, I Installed Arch

10: BTW, I Installed Arch

2019-05-3000:29:121

He didn't stop at Xfce. Jason became that Arch Linux guy. Is it as challenging to install as we’ve been told? We discuss the hard way, and then the easier way. Then we take the mighty Oryx Pro laptop from System76 for a first impressions test drive!
Practically overnight, Intel’s Clear Linux OS has turned into a distribution worth paying attention to. But is it ready for regular desktop Linux users? Plus, Jason goes down yet another awesome rabbit hole with a new project on GitHub aimed at giving back to the Linux and open source community.

6:00: specifically for Virtualbox if you choose "see all networks" or something similar you can choose the VirtNetwork (something like that) wifi option. I don't know how xen handles this (which is what qubesos runs on).

I disagree regarding about if 4GB are enough due the hard drive point of view is missed. my understanding if you have a decent SSD and 4GB the user experience might be good for almost Linux distribution.

4:40: if you find yourself in that position, where you have no apps, then you can hit Ctrl + Alt + F1 and drop yourself into a tty. which from their you can do the usb tethering that I talked about with your phone to pull ethernet.

general comment: if you want a minimal install, an ubuntu server install is very similar to arch linux if you want to have a small bar metal install.

7:20: you can actually connect to your phone through usb and use your phone in USB tethering mode to share a network without wifi and wpa_supplicant. https://www.howtogeek.com/170302/the-htg-guide-to-tethering-your-android-phone/

7:35 Create a windows virt-manager VM(s) (from the free isos Microsoft provides) on a shared ( in the sense that everyone in your family uses it) linux desktop, and just don't buy a license key. Then windows runs perfectly fine, but you don't get to customize it. So, your kids can do their homework assignments, and you don't have to stop them using Linux.
