After Episode 43, it was time to have a serious discussion about the Linux community with my two favorite co-hosts. Linux + Coffee returns with both Schykle and Matt and the topic is a serious one: Gatekeeping, tribalism and toxicity in the Linux community. Why does it happen, and HOW do we deal with it? It's a thought-provoking conversation and we hope you enjoy it. Special Guests: MattDLN and Schykle (Clayton).
A stripped down episode, this is a heart-to-heart chat between me and you about the Linux community, burnout, detours, and things you never expect to face.
My friend MattDLN (aka "The Enabler") joins me for a gaming-soaked episode that even console players will enjoy. First we tackle what's possibly 2020's biggest gaming news: Microsoft purchasing Bethesda. How does PlayStation compete? How will Microsoft's bold move affect the overall gaming landscape.
