We discuss soldering the zerostem, review the new Dell XPS 13, share some command line love and go over your feedback.
This show was recorded prior to Mark Shuttleworth’s announcement about Growing Ubuntu for Cloud and IoT, rather than Phone and convergence. We’ll be discussing that news in a future episode of the Ubuntu Podcast.

love the end-it
I can only be amazed at how incredibly wise you seem totally ignoring the incredible announcement that came out between episodes. Let the dust settle, think through how it will be handled and offer your well thought forward thinking ideas. Oh how hard it must have been for Stuart to sit on this news. Ok I do follow the podcast recording and release schedule, but that is how I would play it.
In the interim, I have to say I have played with a Gnome persistent live boot for a significant time and feel that with the extensions Popey recommended, and a year for Canonical to fully integrate everything, I could get used to it and come to like it in time. I loved and appreciated the ideas behind Unity, but in the end I just use a computer as a tool and will rework my flow a little bit to adapt and move on.
A short message to HeyCitizen and BlamePopey.com: Why not make this the official podcast theme? But just in case: Keep the day job for now :-)))).
Looking forward to seeing you all in Canterbury in August once again!
