Podcast Season 5 Episode 16
In this episode: Encryption is dead, but there are lots of great games in the new Humble Indie Bundle. FreeBSD ditches GCC and Intel clashes with Ubuntu. We've got some great discoveries, we dust down the old wheel of misfortune and discuss your opinions in the Open Ballot.
What's in the show:
Encryption is dead for all kinds of reasons. Fortunately, free software has the answer. There's a new Humble Indie Bundle, and it's a fantastic way of contributing to the EFF. FreeBSD finally ditches the GNU Compiler Collection because it uses GPLv3 (GPLv2 was released 1991). And Intel and Ubuntu fall out over Ubuntu trying to get patches upstream.
