Three Devs and a Maybe

Weekly(ish) podcast on all things software development.

Introduction to GNU/Linux and Distributions with Paul Bowden

This episode we are joined by Paul Bowden to talk all things Linux. We start of with the Linux vs. GNU/Linux vs. GNU/Linux/X debate, and layout what an Linux Operating System actually is composed of. With this foundation in place we move on to discuss the different types of distributions available, along with a host of Window Managers and Desktop Environments. Finally, we wrap up the show with some good advice to budding Linux converts, along with a brief detour into two popular ‘hardcore’ distributions (Gentoo and Arch).
