Goodbye to Linux Outlaws

After more than seven years of Linux Outlaws, my co-host Dan and myself have decided to end the show. This decision has been a while in the making and it is with a heavy heart that I am committing to finally announce it.

Mooltipass: Open Source Offline Password Keeper

Our team believes that great security can only be achieved through complete transparency. That’s why we have been publishing everything that goes into making the Mooltipass on our GitHub repository from the project’s start.

Just like Linux-based operating systems, open source allows our product to benefit from many engineers’ expertise. This results in better code quality, more trust from our final users and verified security implementation.
