  1. Hey guys,
  2.  
  3. I just caught this last weeks episode and I really enjoyed both of your takes on the whole "Canonical becoming Apple" issue. I agree with almost everything you two said, especially the part about "ridiculous fanboy hyperbole", a term that I hope will catch on, especially to this specific issue.

  5. However, I do think that some of what Matt said misses the bigger picture. At one point he said that if Ubuntu causes companies to write software for "Ubuntu" instead of "Linux", we would have to just deal with it, but that's really where we're at right now with developers working on other non-Linux platforms instead of Linux. In that way I understand why people think that Canonical might hurt Linux overall, taking one giant step sideways in terms of drawing developers to the platform. I don't personally see any evidence that this will happen, but I think it's important to at least bear it in mind.

  7. As always, keep up the great work. Love the show and the topics you guys bring to the table.

  11. Also, Matt really doesn't like Dr Pepper? That's Negative in the Soda Dimension.
