We’re still hungover from episode 200, this week: We give you are thoughts and responses to our RMS interview, are we truly being negative in the freedom dimension? Tune in to find out!

Plus we drool over new games coming to Linux, and ask the big question: Can Crowd Funding scale to support open source?

THEN – Matt stops by with a super easy howto for video conferencing under Linux!

Some of the Great Feedback:

Matt’s Howto:

Jitsi: Works great with Ubuntu on our Wild Dog PC from System76.com, plus it will allow you a viable alternative to have video chat conversations with those using OS X and Windows. All three platforms support screen sharing. Linux version only shows the incoming video, previewing your own video while in a call, isn’t working. Video preview does however, work great on the other platforms. The really neat part is with a HD webcam, you can actually video chat in full HD quality video.

We found that setting up jabber accounts, using Gmail credincials, provided success with Jitsi. GoogleTalk isn’t going to give you video chat, you need to take that Google login and use it in the jabber account area instead.

All of this good stuff aside, it should be noted that this software hasn’t been updated in sometime. So it could break sometime down the road. Still, for those who don’t distro hop much, this is a great alternative to Skype. Install via http://jitsi.org/index.php/Main/Download
