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.
Nice interesting podcast. I switched from Canonical to Manjaro six months ago – love it. I’ve their Xfce version with Kodi on my media centre and replace Kubuntu with their KDE version on my desktop. I used Antergos for a short while until what seemed like a minor update broke LightDM so back to Manjaro I went.
I’m sticking with the ‘corpse’ Firefox because the main alternative is that proprietary privacy tracking browser Chrome :-(

Yes I unfortanelty I do not have all ways of all hardware. Even as a member of the lubuntu QA team I don’t have any atom hardware. Yeah bug reports and testing do take time. Yes 900 computers is quite a lot of installs than a lot of people on a QA team have done over the entire time of testing each time yet.
Hi guys, loved the latest show. It was a really interesting and insightful news section, however I’m not sure about that idiot running Anterg OS – tell him to use straight up Arch like a real man!
Another Arch user thinking he is a man by calling someone an idiot.
oopsie – didn’t mean to start a flame war on our website (heaven knows there are enough in other places on the internet), I was just taking the piss out of myself! Perhaps you missed the name the previous post was written under :D
Sorry Jesse, I’m putting my holster on the table and backing away slowly.
Well I’m a “real man” who runs Arch, but who has never successfully used the default Arch distribution… always with Archbang. I’ll give AntergOS a go next time if I can remember that daft name!!
