In this episode, Linux Mint Debian Edition and the Open Learning Center.


Full Circle Podcast is also a proud member of the Tech Podcasts Network.

This is an extra, irregular, short-form podcast, which is intended to be a side-branch of the main Full Circle Podcast. Somewhere to put all the general technology, non-Ubuntu news and opinions, hobby-horses and kruft that doesn’t fit anywhere else. Be prepared for a healthy dose of British sarcasm.

News: Back-to-Mac announcements include something called Launchpad… which happens to be a Canonical Trademark.

  • The Open Learning Centre was founded in 2006 by Alan Lord and Alan Bell. The business is all about helping organisations to benefit from Open Source Software, providing various services from consulting, to training, to support services. As well as helping businesses use OSS in the traditional sense, they also help companies that want to create and market products that use Open Source Software.

26:19 | REVIEW: Linux Mint Debian Edition

Stepping upstream from Ubuntu to Debian Testing, we trial the experimental branch of Linux Mint Debian Edition.

  • Linux Mint Debian Edition (LMDE) is a rolling distribution based on Debian Testing.
  • At the moment, it comes as a 32-bit live DVD with a Gnome desktop.
  • The purpose of LMDE is to look identical to the main edition and to provide the same functionality while using Debian as a base.
