With Ikey languishing in his sick bed, the rest of the team discussed even more Linux hardware, Munich probably switching back to Windows, Elementary’s potentially ill-fated crowdfunded app store, Félim’s new phone and loads more. Plus we learn more about OpenSUSE from its chairman Richard Brown on LNL 04.

You might be interested in Sentillo http://www.sentilo.io/xwiki/bin/view/Sentilo.Community/FAQs It's an open source project originally designed by the city of Barcelona to manage the myriad of sensors spread around the city. It's not aimed at the end user but the data it produces is available to citizens.
Having got it up and running the city has open sourced the code to make it available to any other city that wants it. I think it is a much more interesting use of open source than the interminable arguments about whether Munich will go back to Windows or not.
It also gives a clearer insight on the growing amount of information cities have available to them stretching from rubbish bins on twitter, nothing new there you might say, to quite granular detail about how we live our lives. It could be worth chatting about because it is clearly part of open sources future.

Hello Joe !
There is a bug when you want to post a comment. Two fields are required (Name and Email). I entered a comment and completed the required fields. When I posted it I got the following message: ERROR: Incorrect or empty reCAPTCHA response, please try again.
There was no CAPTCHA at all.
I am going to write my comment here. The decision to switch back to Windows is political. The cost is going to be enormous. They will have to replace all the hardware that is not compatible with Windows 10. They will have to pay for the Microsoft licences. They will have to pay for the Office Suite licences. It is perfectly possible to install antiX-16 on old hardware and MX-16 on more recent hardware. This last one has all the tools a newbie needs to get his job done through GUI. The MX community is extremely user friendly. Their manual is well done. There is a gazillion of videos made in a highly professional way by the dolphin, the guy from the YouTube site runwiththedolphin. So I would pay the MX community for support because Red Hat and openSUSE are too expensive. Any skilled sysadmin certified LPI 101 and 102 or any decent sysadmin certified LPI 201 and 202 could do the job to administrate the IT infrastructure of Munich. The fact that the hardware is old is no excuse to run outdated versions of Ubuntu (12.04 which will die in April of this year) or Windows (2000 and XP which are not supported anymore). The distro antiX-16 can run with as little as 512 MB of RAM and MX-16 needs only 1GB. If necessary it is possible to add some RAM.
You can publish my comment on your site.

Thanks for the show. Question: Been getting kernel error "1/30/17 10:29 PM [drm ntel_cpu_fifo_underrun_irq_handler [i915_bpo]] ERROR CPU pipe B FIFO underrun", upon resume from suspension. Does anyone know why or how to prevent? Ubuntu 16.04, I7-6700HQ, 2.60GHz, Nvidia GeForce 940MX, new Lenovo T460p. Thanks a lot.



I've just listened to the 32-bit vs 64-bit discussion. My main machine (bought inexpensively more than 4 years ago), which I use every day, all day (I work from home), has the following specs:
Processor: Intel Core i3-2120 CPU @ 3.30GHz × 4
Graphics: Intel Sandybridge Desktop x86/MMX/SSE2
RAM: 8Gb
OS: Ubuntu 16.04, 32-bit

I understand that for things like gaming, or for editing large audio, video, or image files, a faster processor, more RAM etc. would be a benefit. But I (and, I suspect, 99% of other people) never do those things. Most people apparently just browse the web and social media, use email etc, and play content (which is often streaming) -- this is surely partly why phones, tablets, and Chromebooks are undercutting desktop & laptop sales: because the extra speed and power they offer is redundant for most people's needs.

So can anyone explain why I, or anyone like me, might want to ditch a perfectly functional machine to upgrade to a 64-bit one?

Lots of Linux games in the latest Humble Bundle.
Nice even the games are not new.
And 100% to charity.

Have y'all had a chat about lisenses? I think it could be an interesting and rant worthy topic.

Regarding last episode of a lack of a professional video editor, there is one, Blackmagic Davinci Resolve (not the free version), is a solid video editor, with superior grading to any app that i've tried.

The free version is very good, but limited to windows/mac. The full version does run under linux.
