Linux Saloon 60: Open Mic Night, Qr Codes, Messaging Platforms, Linux Hardware

This Open Mic Night was kicked off talking about how Aris is using a QR code to make it easy for guests log onto his home network with their smart phones. The conversation about messaging apps weaved around an extensive number of tangential threads that were quite interesting. Adam did join the conversation to correct the record on his interpretation of the “thumbs up emoji”, some talk about small, Linux-Friendly, hardware, an amusing conversation about the benefits of Gentoo Linux and more.

Thanks so much for your continued support in watching, sharing and subscribing to Linux Saloon.
