The first few episodes were good when the hosts talked about cool things happening in Linux and open source. Lately it seems to have to devolved into fanboyism with an obligatory Apple/Microsoft bashing section every episode. I don’t listen to a Linux podcast to hear about Apple and Microsoft. I want to know what cool things are happening in open source.

Love it!

  • Disappearing files ZFS On Linux Bug — Data loss when copying a directory with large-ish number of files. For example, cp -r SRC DST with 10000 files in SRC is likely to result in a couple of "cp: cannot create regular file `DST/XXX': No space left on device" error messages, and a few thousand files missing from the listing of the DST directory.
