Thanks for the great feedback! I appreciate you taking the time to send it along. Please keep sending your suggestions, comments, and questions. Your feedback is greatly appreciated and it will help make the show even better! In this episode: a discussion of the ideals formulated by the GNU Project, specifically with regards to free software, and how free software compares with open-source software; recursive acronyms; my three reasons why free and open-source software is relevant and important; why it is hard to eliminate proprietary software entirely, notwithstanding free software alternatives to certain programs, like Flash and Java; a brief look at various free and open-source licenses, such as the GNU General Public License (”GPL”), with a nod to the Creative Commons.

I highly recommend ZFS over Linux software raid. Seems much more stable and easier to manage.

In Episode 89 HonkeyMagoo was talking about Linux on Samsung for the Samsung DeX devices (Galaxy S8, S8+, and Note8). The dongle below is $27.99 on Amazon and works in DeX mode, so I've signed up to be notified when Linux on Samsung is publicly available. The dongle has one HDMI socket, one USB C for power and one USB 3 socket (which I have a USB hub plugged into now with a mouse and keyboard). +Richard Hughes​ may want to get one for his Note8.

I should try this. First I heard of Redis tho.

Looking for SBC suggestions other than Pi-3's for a digital signage project at work. Currently testing with Pi-3's and the GPU's are too weak. Need HDMI & preferably on-board Wifi.
