Culture of Shiny | LINUX Unplugged 25

Culture of Shiny | LINUX Unplugged 25

Aaron Seigo joins us to call out the new and shiny culture that’s pervasive in the free software community. And even your own humble hosts have been afflicted with from time to time.

The reality is users want new features, but hate reduced functionality. And often free software developers want to build something new. But what is the cost of this constant form of “progress”?

How do we shift value from new and shiny, to tried and true to help enable wider free software adoption?
