Linux Cranks Podcast

Filed under: The Linux Blog News — TheLinuxBlog.com at 4:55 am on Thursday, August 21, 2008

If you haven’t heard the Linux Cranks have a podcast and a live show. They’ve been around for a while so I’d be surprised if you haven’t heard about them, but this is for those that haven’t. The show is basically a bunch of Linux nerds talking about Linux and generally hating on everything.

They currently go live on Saturday nights at midnight eastern and I think that all if not most are welcome. The last time I listened to them live it was quite fun and they have some good topics to talk about and a a fair share of crankyness.

The podcast is well put together from the show and is all in good fun (I think) but be warned there may be some language some may consider to be foul, vulgar or repulsive. Some people such as young children, co-workers and even animals (mostly cats) with sensitive feelings may not be suited to listen, but if you think you can hack it, give it a shot.

After all it is the intrawebs, and if you don’t like it you don’t have to listen.

They asked if I was going to give them a bad review since there were some technical problems with TalkShoe when I said I wouldn’t they then said I was going to ruin their reputation, so this is more of a recommendation or a notice to let you know that you should listen to it and get your crank on. Look forward to seeing you there some time.

Linux Needs More Haters!

Filed under: General Linux — TheLinuxBlog.com at 1:54 pm on Friday, July 18, 2008

In response to Jeremy Allison from ZDNet’s Blogs who claims not to be a blogger! Sorry, I thought about saying I have a “column” too but it just doesn’t work when you have “blog” in your URL. But onto the main topic of this post: LinuxHater!

I’m read linuxhater and I’m still a luser. Linux is the operating system that people love to hate. If you haven’t ever read http://linuxhater.blogspot.com before I’d give it a look. Its a great read, and I don’t think that Linux users should take it to heart, I can understand that some people may get upset from the effort that they personally put into a project, but if your not willing to admit your flaws where is the room for growth?

To improve criticism is needed and the LinuxHater blog definitely has lots to say and doesn’t always go about discussing the issues in a dignified way, but if you read it in good fun its great!
