Jesse talked to Joe about his first impressions of the Arch-based Antergos — which were apparently quite positive, as he’s still using it.
A huge thank you to Per Andersson for the PayPal donation, and to our stalwart Monthly Supporters. The show simply wouldn’t be possible without you guys, so thank you!
Cory Pollard wondered if anybody could suggest an open source Chromecast syncing solution? Joe mentioned Videostream, but we believe that this is proprietary. Anyone?
On Ubuntu, and our less than stellar impressions of 16.04, Christopher Davis and Thomas MacCallum respectfully disagreed. Florian talked up the perceived benefits of ZFS, whilst Mark related a poor experience with Lubuntu 16.04. Rounding things off, Jason Smith pointed out that Ubuntu on Windows may well turn out to be a far bigger thing than many in the FOSS world are caring to admit.
01:15:00 Mycroft — Ryan Sipes Interview
We chatted with Ryan Sipes, CTO at Mycroft AI, about the current status of the project, and how their plans to open source key aspects of Mycroft are shaping up. Ryan’s enthusiasm is quite contagious, and we look forward to having him back on the show in a few months’ time to bring us a further update. Meantime, if you’d like to contribute to the Open Speech To Text project that was mentioned, head on over to OpenSTT.
Thanks for listening.
