    @Chris:disqus ,the article about 5 lenses is too old,now there are tons of intersting lenses check this http://askubuntu.com/questions/38772/what-lenses-for-unity-are-available   the best thing about unity 5 is speed

    Ya I read about the speed improvement. I wish I could have gotten it up and running before the show. I burned a few hours giving it a go, but I think the current Alpha hates my hardware.

    Thanks for the link too!-Chris

    Check this out. After this when you go to Distro Watch and look at the last 7 days deft has jumped to 32.

    so theoretically if you had a ubuntu tv and could mod it, could you remove unity and put on xfce and have a totally functioning pc/tv ?

    I’m diging Unity 5.0. Nice, quick and snappy.

    I was just going to close the JB tab after the BEEP! when I heard in my headphone the P word. I had a terrible start of day, but You guys just made me laugh. Big Thanks to You guys for making my day :)

    Linux went BIG at CES this year, we’ll cover the highlights and give you the full scoop on taking a pee while driving a car.

    I find it interesting that in the same week Ubuntu makes a splash announcing Ubuntu TV that Microsoft also tells hardware vendors that under no circumstance should the installation of another OS be permitted on ARM systems.  Surely, Ubuntu’s next big project will be tablets and phones (ARM based).   Will this kill any hope of Ubuntu being able to crack those markets?

    How about these small distros Commodore OS Vision and YLMF linux

    1. GoatCam! GoatCam! GoatCam!

    2. On a related front, maybe to choose the random distro, distro names should be written on a piece of paper and whichever one the goats don’t eat gets picked.

    3. Bryan made a big deal about Chris thinking of toilet seats as something to make with a 3D printer, but last week he suggested that Ubuntu might be unveiling an orange and brown Ubuntu toilet! Actually, between those two subjects and this week’s blooper reel, something seems up (and I don’t mean the toilet seat)….

    4. I was extremely upset about MS’ locking of ARM devices (as my distro of choice is hard at work on an ARM port, which I’ve been pining for, and then this news broke), but Chris & Bryan’s slamming of Microsoft over this (and the “Win8, if metro-only, isn’t any better than ChromeOS” angle, which I’d never heard anyone bring up before) cheered me up and encouraged me that my saving and planning to upgrade my 2006-era 512MB laptop this year with something nice and shiny probably won’t be derailed after all. Thanks!

    5. I watched LAS right before going to bed and as the sun woke me up this morning I was thinking about LAS and the 3D printer it covered. I thought about what I’d make with it, and what sprang to mind for me was LAS action figures. Then my mind drifted to the idea of a LAS play set… it would be the LAS desk, with removable, poseable Chris and Bryan action figures seated behind it. Bryan’s figure would have a Nokia N900 accessory, and Chris’ his Android tablet. There would also be “the boiler that runs Linux” that Chris pulled out after the story of the potato that ran Linux aired. I started thinking about Gumstix and Raspberry PI and then the ideas really started flowing… behind the desk would be a 4-5″ LCD panel that would be Linux/SoC-powered and could show your own uploaded background images. On top of that, with an ethernet or WiFi connection, the set could actually display the LAS episodes! Perhaps it could function like a clock and begin playing the live stream when it’s on. Going even further, there could be vibrators under the playset’s seats and a software algorithm could differentiate between Chris and Bryan’s voices and vibrate the right seat so that the correct action figure jiggled as they talk on the live stream. Maybe even a second, smaller LCD (built into the front of the desk?) could display the IRC channel during live broadcasts as well. Being able to participate in the live chat via voice recognition input might be going too far, but why not? There might also be a few discreet buttons that could have programmable actions, so, for instance, pressing one could halt the display of background images and pop up the clip of Allan saying “You’re insane!” to Chris. Perhaps the others could trigger the show’s catch-phrases like “All this week on the Linux Action Show”, “What’s new in the news this week”, “Alright Bryan,” etc. I now have a new goal in life to see this concept become reality! :-)

  14. mihajovics Says:

    how can microsoft prevent hardware vendors of doing so?

  15. Alex Says:

    Hmmm.. If Lunduke* starts releasing stuff for Haiku… I’d buy a copy.

    The cooc? It sounds just like when an American/Britt pronouncing the Norwegian word for the thing men have between their two big toes, where the legs meet. …

    Great show gents. As we see Microsoft exit CES, Canonical comes in with a mighty fine grand entrance. Out with the old, and in with the new!  :-)
