  1. Regarding Chris' comments related to his Mac experience on the recent episode. I was a Mac user for years and ultimately dumped all my Mac Hardware and switched to GP hardware and Linux (I'm a happy Manjaro user, but have used many distros).
  2. Wanted to share a comment regarding a Mac Application that I wish we had available for Linux. There is a firewall application for MacOS called "Little Snitch" that not only blocks inbound traffic on the network, but at the application level it blocks unknown outbound traffic and notifies you with a very simple and functional GUI and dock indicator. You can check it out here:

  5. There have been attempts to recreate this in Linux, but nothing comes close to the functionality and ease of use of Little Snitch for Mac.

  7. I really enjoy your show(s) on Jupiter Broadcasting. I listen to the recorded sessions since I live and work in Japan. However, my time here is coming to an end and I'm returning to my home in the Houston area. Hoping to make the next Texas LinuxFest and maybe run into you guys.

  12. P.S.
  13. Loved the post show program talking about old hardware. I got started in the days when Windows wasn't even really usable yet and DOS was still king. That said, it wasn't long before the first usable edition of Windows showed up (I think it was Windows 3.1). At the time, I had PC's that still had 8086 and 8086 processors and I believe I recall the slot architecture still primarily being ISA. I also remember dealing with MFM\RLL harddisks.
  14. In the early days of Windows, OS/2 kicked it's ass. Was a superior OS compared to the DOS\Windows combo.
