After a citywide lockdown and earthquake in our beautiful city of Zagreb, this episode begins on a serious note. But it's a message intended to bring hope and positivity back into our lives during this unprecedented time in our history. And the discovery of the week aims to get everyone involved in the fight against coronavirus. (OUR FOLDING@HOME TEAM # = 240869) After that I offer some speculation about the System76 keyboard, my experience with Endless OS and recap my time gaming on Salient OS. Plus, a very relevant short clip from the first Linux For Everyone Patron Live Chat that took place last week.
This is the big one: a candid, informative and downright fascinating 75 minute conversation with Canonical's Alan Pope. He answers some tough questions like "Why isn't the Snap Store open source?" and "How can you prove Ubuntu is the most popular Linux distribution?" We also talk about YouTube vs LBRY, his role as a developer advocate and his passion for interacting with the community, and much, much more. Sit back, grab your favorite beverage, and enjoy! Special Guest: Alan Pope.
Community member, Linux voyager and elementary OS enthusiast Schykle joins me to discuss a wide range of topics this week.

Sometimes an interview opens new doors of perception. You're able to look at a situation from a completely fresh perspective, and gain insights you never considered were there. That describes my frank conversation with Ubuntu Budgie Team Member Dustin Krysak. It's an organic chat that covers a huge range of topics, from the struggles a smaller distribution faces and how donations are spent, to how the larger Ubuntu family offers support, to what it takes to truly take desktop Linux mainstream. We close our interview with a fantastic exploration of how pretty much anyone can become a contributor and make a difference in the FOSS community. PLUS: Your feedback about why we distro-hop! Special Guest: Dustin Krysak.
