Paying for Linux | Linux Out Loud 17

This week, Linux Out Loud chats about paying for the Linux Distro you use.

Welcome to episode 17 of Linux Out Loud. We fired up our mics, connected those headphones as we searched the community for themes to expound upon. We kept the banter friendly, the conversation somewhat on topic, and had fun doing it.

Nate telling Wendy “no” as God was worth the entire episode by itself.


It was definitely a fun point in a not so fun situation.

Thank you for your awesomely constructive feedback, and it’s world shattering helpful advice. We should totally take the advice of someone who can not count the years accurately since the initial Linux release. I mean how could we go wrong!?

Just an FYI that was 1991, if we were going by your math of 32 years, that would put it in 1990 before anyone else had seen heard or used Linux. However for accuracy it was 1991, and at 32 to years that would make this current year 2023. Which by every account available reads 2022. It’s ok I know subtraction can be hard for some people.

If you aren’t happy with the show you there is a great way for you to be happier. You can simply subtract the show from any podcast listening app you may use, or the url from your mind as well. Oh forgot subtractions hard, hope this simple math tip helps you add some happiness to your life, but basic math seems to be a tough subject for you.

Thanks again for the feedback.
