I believe we can use linux to show people how you can teach your kids to use a free, fun kid friendly OS that’s geared directly to their age group (https://www.edubuntu.org/) as an example.
Or Sonar Linux howto getting started :).
Love your podcast!
You asked for a video topic to cover for new Linux users. I have one for you:
How to best setup/partition your hard drives for dual-booting both Windows and Linux.
But here’s the rub: many of us nowadays have multiple hard drives – both an SSD and a larger HD. So a video that lays out optimal setup for those of us with both an SSD and a HD would be ideal.
A thing that would be great to talk about in terms of video-related
topics would be screencasting and streaming. How can one record a
screencast or stream to sites like Twitch. When doing a screencast, what
are the best tools to edit it afterwards.
For example I am relatively new to Linux and still search an easy and
reliable way to stream to Twitch for example. ScreenStudio is great but
I can’t get it really to work in Manjaro, now I am using Simple
Screenrecorder but that is fiddly and I didn’t try yet how I set it up
with an external mic.
And I haven’t looked yet how I can not also stream the game but also a
video of my webcam at the same time.
In addition I’d like to enter the LastPass-giveaway ^^

Taking about some “nerve problems” he has, the Pope said:
“Must treat them well, these nerves, give them mate (an Argentine stimulant tea) every day,”
Hmmmm….wonder if Cinnamon would help? 😉
Thank you very much for your time, effort and spirit of giving that you have exhibited over the years. Not one podcast goes by without me learning something new about Linux and Open Source Software. But with this being said, there were a few couple of points where you were less than spot on in your last episode.
Finally, I had an opportunity to look at the tools in the designzum article posted in your show notes. Many of the tools described (including Bluefish) are dated and don’t adequately support the HTML5 specification. With your approval, I’d like to send you a list of the tools, I myself employ in my own day to day coding.
Once again, I thank you and Coop for broadcasting such a quality show, and hope I didn’t come off as a total schmuck. I just want to make sure that you and the community have the most complete and up to date information pertaining to what we discussed. Thanks again.
Cody / Door,
Greetings from England, the land of real ales and awesome bacon.
The Vegimite UK alternative you eluded to is on show #164 is Marmite (http://www.unilever.co.uk/
It’s a yeast extract and has been around since 1902 and I believe predates Vegimite by 20 years. A by product of the brewing process it’s actually made from beer! It’s one of those strange English inventions that you either love or hate with passion, there seems to be no middle ground. They even advertise it as “You either a love or hate it!”, with “I Hate Marmite” tee-shirts!
There is an independent web site at (http://www.ilovemarmite.com) that explains all. I’m surprised you guys don’t like it, with its incredibly salty, savoury flavour (like bacon) and it’s beer roots, but then you are from the country that gave the world aerosol cans of cheese and semi-liquid marshmallow fluff in a jar! 🙂

Door and Cody,
Have either of you used the Synergy Android beta or any other program to give that ability to your tablets? I haven’t rooted my tablet yet and this is the first thing to give me reason to. Curious about your thoughts.
