In this episode: Microsoft Windows and Canonical’s Ubuntu hold hands. There’s an XScreensaver scandal at Debian. Convergence has nearly converged with reality and WhatsApp is now super-secure. Plus Finds and Vox Populi.
What’s in the show:
Microsoft and Canonical have create WINE-antimatter by allowing you to ‘apt-get install’ many Ubuntu packages on Windows 10. Debian has got into a debate with the developer of XScreensaver, Jamie Zawinski, who would like Debian to stop shipping his project. Canonical’s long-promised convergence device is now available for pre-order. Linux is now running (unofficially) on Sony’s PlayStation 4, if you’re got an old firmware version and WhatsApp now has full end-to-end encryption.
