    I enjoy LUGRadio but with the great of respect those guys can hardly claim not to be "blind zealots". I've lost count of the number of times they've recommended Ubuntu with no reasoning; and that Distro Wars is just lame. It might be an interesting segment if the opinions were given by people who could actually say something insightful on the subject but it comes off as rather pathetic zealotry. I might agree with them, but they're not
    the unbiased consumers they or you seem to think they are.

    On this subject, I was quite offended at the last episode I heard where they attempted to conflate the Free Software movement (as opposed to the Open Source movement) with the people Laura Didio claimed where harrassing here. Never mind that Didio may not even be telling the truth in regards to this, lord knows everything else she says has a price, it didn't stop a rabid tirade of abuse against the Free Software movement. Oh and Slashdot got a bad rap too. Can someone please tell that guy that the people who post on Slashdot are many and have a broad range of opinions. (I'm genuinely astonished that it ever needs to be stated that Slashdot has more than two users; do any other message boards have this problem?)

    It's a good and enjoyable show, but turn down the fan-boy talk. The show works best when it's used as a forum for developers who can offer something insightful. Endless quarrels regarding Linux distributions and childish interjections about Python not being a proper programming language (??) only spoil its credibililty.

    There is a much better Linux show out there. The Linux Link Tech Show http://www.thelinuxlink.net/tllts/ [thelinuxlink.net]

    rms was on it the other day, and its always live streaming on binrev radio http://www.binrev.com/ [binrev.com]

    the linux link is 3 or 4 guys from some lug somewhere that enjoy doing what they do. (no paid)

    the Lug radio guys are paid for what they say, and even canceled their show because they didnt get enough money.

    I downloaded the LUGRadio show where they interviewed Miguel de Icaza. I was less than impressed by the insight of the LUG guys. They seemed to think that any project which might rely on Mono or .NET could just as easily be done in Python!
