Welcome to Episode 81 of Destination Linux

Hey, Destination Linux crew,

I love the show, but one thing greatly troubles me…

Ryan “CLAIMS” his car ‘runs linux’, but I am thinking he means that his car ‘boots’ linux.   I refuse to believe these outrageous claims until I see a logo of some sort that Ryan has produced ACTUALLY USING this ‘linux’ on his car.  That’s right. I’m calling ‘bogus’ on this, until Ryan offers proof-positive that his car RUNS linux by producing something with inkscape or gimp USING HIS CAR.

I admit, I was skeptical when he professes his love for linux, but uses an iPhone to make phone calls. (Android, as google-fied as it may be, is certainly closer to the linux family than iOS)

Seriously, though. Thank you for the show each week! I don’t miss an episode, and, like Ryan, I also work telecom… It’s a welcome relief to hear the friendly linux-centric banter while I go about my I&R (install and repair) business day.

PS: I’m not sure if Michael knew this, but KDE is SO customizable,  I’ve even found an option that you can ‘like it’ or ‘not like it’ in the settings!!!

Thanks,

-Andy

I would like to thank each and every one of you for listening and watching every week. It has been some of the best times doing this show with Ryan, Zeb and Michael.

Rocco

Destination Linux is going to continue. But the format naturally has to change as Rocco handled many critical tasks of the show specific to editing.

During this transition period we’re going to have to do some testing and maneuvering with the show format and how we bring the content to you each week. Our primary focus will continue to be the podcast itself and making sure we’re keeping the patrons and our audience informed.

Everybody have a great week and remember the Journey ITSELF is just as important as the Destination

Hi,

Big fan of the show, i listen as soon as i can to each new episode.

I thought you would be interested to know that Linux is already dominant in the high end VFX world. I work for a small animation studio where Linux is the pro-dominant OS, but is the industry standard, not the exception.

There are several high-end products which work on Linux, including Autodesk Maya, Mudbox, Foundry Modo, Nuke, Davinci Resolve, Fusion, SideFX Houdini. The large VFX Studios including Pixar, Dreamworks, ILM, Weta also use linux. (CentOS is the main distro used, i heard ILM just switched to CentOS 7 from 6.).

While Video editing is still a mix of Mac/Windows/Linux, with linux being the weaker for video editing it is still possible to create high-end work from start to finish on Linux using industry leading software.

Also Ryan should try EXWM, i now use that after having used i3 for about 7 years.

Regards,

Richard
