Novi podcast -Sourcecast.org

septembar 5, 2008 2 komentara

Juce sam na Hacker public radiju odslusao nultu epizodu nove zvezde na nebu podcasta – SourceCast. Nisam uspeo da cujem ko je dvojac koji stoji iza ove prinove, niti da nadjem nesto o njima na web strani, ali je iz onoga sto su pricali vise nego ocigledno da imaju dobar uvid u sve sta se desava u linux svetu i da dobro poznaju „materiju“. Jedan od njih je debian developer, dok drugu polovinu cini dugogodisnji gentoo user i takodje software developer (trenutno aktivan na Arch linuxu).

Ideja podcasta je da ozbiljno testira i uporedi aktuelne distribucije. Parametri testa su sledeci (prekopirano sa sajta):

Granny Suitability
— Ease of Installation
— Ease of getting codecs/non-free software
— Default layout/theme
Power User Suitability
— Customizability
— Flexibility
— Ease of custom compilation of anything
— Ease of getting bleeding edge anything
Annoyance Factor
— Does Richard Stallman sing kumbaya if I try to install something non-free?
— Stupid design decisions that seemingly have no point
— Do they change window managers and call it a new distro? >:-|
Software Selection
— Freshness. I don’t want no stinking Firefox 1.5.
— Scale. Do I have to go hunting alot of stuff outside main repos?
Community Support
— Perhaps some snooping on their forum/IRC … toss them questions of any problems we run in to.
Performance
— GeekBench
— Memory Footprint

Do danas je izaslo 6 epizoda (ukljucujuci 0 i 3,14 epizodu) u kojima su testirani ubuntu, arch linux, open suse i foresight linux.  Trenutno na top listi distribucija vodi Arch linux. Epizoda o Archu se moze skinuti odavde. Ovaj podcast nije prikladan za malu decu i izrazito je „politicki nekorektan“.
