I dare to share a link about LiMux (Linux in the city of Munich) via Google translate https://translate.google.com/translate?sl=de&tl=en&js=y&prev=_t&hl=de&ie=UTF-8&u=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.heise.de%2Fnewsticker%2Fmeldung%2FLinux-in-Muenchen-Berater-empfehlen-Ausstieg-aus-LiMux-auf-Raten-3463100.html&edit-text=&act=url

In short: the new major has called for a review of the Linux initiative. The consultant agency is a partner company of Microsoft and has found that switching to Windows 10 from Linux is the only feasible solution for the future. They have not bothered to calculate the costs of the transition.

The important background information: Microsoft moved its headquarters in Germany to Munich.

Dear mintCasters, regarding the e-mail Jos Poortvliet sent you: I wonder how well a chromebook would work when having Nextcloud as its cloud infrastructure in stead of google's cloud services. Is that even possible? Maybe you could make it into a show topic.

In response to the section on what proprietary software you are using, maybe you could add a Mint confessions segment? 

mintCast + subsonic + letsecrypt = broken

Greetings minCast community,

I have been a listener and subscribed to the podcast for a long time using the Subsonic media server + the DSub Android app and all worked fine seamlessly picking up my daily dose of podcasts while on the go. But since mintCast has gone https, I have had problems with the mintCast feed out of some 20 or so podcasts that I subscribe to. Subsonic throws up an error saying "0 episodes – Error hostname in certificate didn't match: != <*.wordpress.com> OR <*.wordpress.com> OR"

I have checked the subsonic forums for this error and nothing seems to come up so i wonder if anyone that has this weird combination of mintCast + Subsonic that maybe has encountered this weird error. I have removed and re-added the feed multiple times trying both the mp3 and the ogg feeds to no avail. It won't have it. Subsonic just doesn't like the nice and secure certificate of mintCast lol :-)

Microsoft (albeit some time ago) on the question of open source. Paranoia, greed or both?

Is Scott no longer doing the podcast?

Maybe worth mentioning - a project by the people who left ownCloud.
#Nextcloud replaces #ownCloud! What you all have been waiting for: the future of private file sync and share!
