  1. You probably realize this already, but just in case you didn’t, this show is the same as episode 62. Guess the wrong one got uploaded.

  2. No Ep 62 and Ep 63 are different in the links. I just checked personally. Please give the link another try.

    • Yes, I see they are correct. Not sure what happened in my feed reader. Thanks.

      • Sorry there, I am to blame for this confusion, I saw your comment and I just went ahead and changed it, but i never got around to posting here that it was fixed.

  3. Spirited discussion on our future desktops, thanks.

    FYI – linux mint stickers do exist, a quick search will turn some up on ebay and zapple.

  4. I had to resnag the ep since I found a weird edit or something a little after half way through or so (all of a sudden I heard Jaloob in the midst of the Unity/Gnome 3 discussion), but after hearing a good part of the Unity/Gnome 3 discussion I’m left with one impression: I’m glad I switched to KDE last year. This way I don’t have to worry with either Unity or Gnome Shell, which is good because what I heard did not make me want to use either of them.

  5. I recently created a button in Mint that does exactly what Unity Expo button does. I too like the Expo button but Unity or Gnome Shell is not required.

  6. thanks for the work on the podcast, I have been having some issues with the artwork I am working on, but progress is still being made.


  7. I am glad Linux Mint 11 will not use Unity or Gnome Shell it would be a mistake. I think Ubuntu is making bad decisions and that will hurt them unless they change course. I believe Mint may pass them as most used linux distro this year also.

    What Ubuntu is doing sort of reminds me of the change from Windows XP to Vista.
