Title: Best Laid Schemes
In this episode: Canonical launches an app developer portal and there's a new mobile Linux initiative. We create a whole new section of the podcast, discover lots of things and discuss whether secure booting will hinder Linux adoption.
Sorry for the delay!
More through luck that judgement, we're back on an every-other-Thursday schedule.

What's in the show:
Canonical has launched an Ubuntu App Developer site to help people create and publish Linux applications, and yet another 'mobile and device' operating system has emerged. This one's called Tizen, and it's a project hosted by the Linux Foundation with support from both Intel and Samsung.
