ShotWell Review & Security Tips  | The Linux Action Show! s12e07

This week on, The Linux Action Show!

We review the new Linux photo management software ShotWell and see how it stacks up to Picasa and F-Spot!

Then we cover the C|Net article that claims 20% of Android Apps are really SPYING on you! We break it down and get to the bottom of what’s really going on, and who the source behind this study gets paid by!

Plus we hand out some useful security tips for new Linux users, and we’ll give you our take on our personal approach to staying secure under Linux, and why the myth that Linux is more secure can lead to carelessness!

All this week, on The Linux Action Show!
