    Excellent show. I even enjoyed the command line tutorial even though I feel the command line is now something prehistoric. The evolution of computers & technology is a path to maximum intuitivity and minimal human interaction. Good knowledge of the command line sadly still carries some prestige yet this respect is generally comes mainly from other dinosaurs. Many people still think Linux is a difficult OS to learn simply because of undying loyalty to, what should be, an extinct input system.

      I began typing a long diatribe and then started over. Here is the short copy. People are still going to be at the base of it getting machines to do their will and I simply don’t trust people. If you do then great, keep right on clicking but remember that someone has to check all that code and then a lot of people “click” it having no idea what is actually happening. Given human history I see people being dumbed down and eventually being controlled like animals. That’s why individuality and knowing what is really going on… personally OWNING your own sh*t is so important. Without it we are just pigs at a trough.

    In listener feed back Scott made a reference to a French multiboot iso to usb tool. I can not find it with my feeble google skills. Please post a link to the unetbootin multiboot alternative.

    Also, thanks for encouraging polite discourse.

    Thanks again for a great show. I really appreciated the command line tutorial. I’m inspired to take on more command line. Keep up the great work. You guys convinced me in making a donation. Looking forward to the next show.
