Thanks Maciej,

+1 to 'X/K/Ubuntu, coverage in future episodes, community and events updates' in future episodes.

I've been using the latest Kubuntu release and I have to say it's great. Comparing what was in it 6 months ago to what is in it today has pretty much astonished me so I'd like to do a piece on it sometime soon. The other thing is to get some coverage of code jams whenever they appear on the horizon.

Again, just to reiterate, if anyone wants to do a short piece just record it down (I just used a skype headset) and audacity. If it fits the bill, I'll edit it - take out long silences, bloopers and stuff - send it back to you and if you're happy for it to be included and then you can let me know and I'll mix it in.

Given my own natural bias the show is software development focussed but I'd also like to have less technical pieces too, especially Free Culture, Free Software in schools, gov, etc. One of these things is Ubuntu so if anyone has any particular topics or ideas for the podcast just shout on this list or post a comment at
