Some days your wife shows you she loves you in creative and wonderful ways. For Joe Leuzzi today was not that day. In a flash back moment we get to see Joe persuing his first love. That's right as the lead singer of a Bon Jovi Cover band. All I have to say is that the Music worlds loss was Linuxinstall.net's Gain. Enjoy this and let Joe know what a stud he is in the comments....

Check it out we recorded this live via Google Hangout On-Air. Watch for updates on how you can watch us record live. We will also be adding a chat room too. More details to come.
Wow, I'm not even too sure what to say about this one. I'm not sure who out there is still using Open Office, but if you are and you have been waiting for a software update, you are in luck!!!! The Apache Foundation has finally released an update to Open Office after their last update 469 days ago. I'm not sure if this is some sort of record or not (I'm sure there have been several software updates much longer then this, and I'm not talking about the follow up to the original Duke Nuke'em game either).
We really didn't have too much to say on this one, since none of us had the chance to acutally try out the update since I found the story shortly before we recorded. Check out the story over at ITWorld to see what they had to say.
I'm sure almost everyone reading this site has used skype at one time or another. After Microsoft purchased Skype a lot of people wondered what type of changes Microsoft would make to this software, as we all know, sooner or later it will be Redmondized.
One of the first big changes comes in the way that Skype handles it's peer to peer networking in regards to the supernodes being used. Microsoft has put together thousands of linux servers that will act as the supernodes to Skype. Check out what we think about this, and then read the article over on arstechnica.
On the podcast we discussed a couple of Ubuntu stories. We try not to focus too much on any one distro and try to spread the love, so I figured I would just mention both of the stories in the same post here. (That and Skyrim is calling me, so I need to get these posted to get Brian off my back!)
So, the first Ubuntu story we discussed covered the past present and future of Ubuntu courtesy of bbc.com.
Our second story, was brought to us by Phoronix and discusses more of the shipping statistics of Ubuntu and their numbers in this regard.
