Greetings from The Linux Link Tech Show!

Hello,
I'm one of the co-hosts of The Linux Link Tech Show. I recently tried Arch Linux and I really like it. I gave it a little plug on last nights episode:
http://tllts.info/archives/tllts_112-11-30-05.ogg
http://tllts.info/archives/tllts_112-11-30-05.mp3

It's around the 9:38 mark.

I'm trying to get the other guys on the show to give it a try. I think they'll like  it since they're hardcore Slackware guys.

I'll post mentions or Arch Linux in the future.
We'd love to have Judd on the show at some point for an interview.
Keep up the good work and take care.

Pat

Re: Greetings from The Linux Link Tech Show!

I've corresponded with Judd and we're definitely interviewing him in the near future. I'll post an update once we get a firm date.

Re: Greetings from The Linux Link Tech Show!

Cool.

Please don't just do a "normal" distro chat though. One of Arch's strengths is its community, and I think it would be great if some of the discussion could go in that direction.

Re: Greetings from The Linux Link Tech Show!

LOL

It would be a great show. Although I'm not sure Skoal would do a great deal toward Arch publicity, as the "Why don't you use Arch Linux anymore?" may open a can of worms.

Re: Greetings from The Linux Link Tech Show!

It just occurred to me, how exactly is this a 'User Contribution'? Unless you mean that publicity is a contribution. I suppose it *could* be, but surely this ought to be in Arch Discussion?

Re: Greetings from The Linux Link Tech Show!

Are you sure Arch's strength is in its community? I think perhaps that is its biggest weakness.

Re: Greetings from The Linux Link Tech Show!

I agree with Dusty to an extent. I think the community in general is pretty negative, but there are a few people that make the "community" very positive. AUR is very positive as well.

Re: Greetings from The Linux Link Tech Show!

I happen to like this community. Most communities are filled with even more idiots. Atleast here you more often than not get decent response.

(Wee! 100 posts!)

Re: Greetings from The Linux Link Tech Show!

At least it isnt one of the communities that doesnt go "why didnt you rtfm rtffaq and rtfxyx before?" or "giyf" or "rtfman apt"

Not hinting at any in particular of course tongue  tongue  :twisted:

Ah oh - this was nearly the welcome greeting of sarah31 in response of my first posting as arch n00b. "To lazy to read and move fingers, pal?" and such. smile
Made me even tougher, sniff.

Re: Greetings from The Linux Link Tech Show!

Judd has agreed to come onto to the show on February 8th. I'll post a reminder a few days before the interview.

Re: Greetings from The Linux Link Tech Show!

I've converted Dan (one of my co-hosts) over to Arch:
http://tllts.info/archives/tllts_119-01-18-06.ogg
http://tllts.info/archives/tllts_119-01-18-06.mp3

We talk about Arch Linux at approximately 105:10.

FYI, we're interviewing Judd on Feb 8th.
