phearus ,

A great addition, exposition, and expansion upon to the Linux Action Show!

Chris, Matt, and the greater Jupiter Broadcasting community discuss and provide further commentary and exposition into the world of Linux and Open Source Software.

The casual, intelligent, and open nature of Linux Unplugged serves to both involve and inform the audience and mirror / parallel the mechanisms and culture of Open Source Software development and participation.

Like all Jupiter Broadcasting shows - I look forward to Linux Unplugged every week.
