Alan Pope, Mark Johnson, Tony Whitmore, Laura Cowen, and podcats are drinking mulled wine and eating mince pies with homemade brandy butter in Studio A for the twenty-second and final episode of Season Five of the Ubuntu Podcast from the UK LoCo Team!
In this week’s show:-
- We recall our predictions for 2012 and decide whether we were right or wrong. We foolishly then decide to make some predictions for 2013.
- And we perform the Annual UUPC Christmas Play!
- We also chat about reading a book, getting a new laptop that hasn’t yet been installed with Ubuntu (but will be), waiting for a Nexus 4, and switching off adblock.
- In the news this week:-
- We play a preview of a forthcoming documentary about Tomorrow’s Technology Today. Thanks to Victoria Pritchard and Robin Catling – and, of course, the Herbert Maxwell Fosdyke Curmudgeon Memorial Sound Archive.
- We chat about some Ubuntu related news in the bit-about-Ubuntu:-
- And in Not-about-Ubuntu:
- And we have your feedback (including, finally, two – yes two! – voicemails from listeners).
