The first GOL Podcast episode of 2021 is here, come get it while it's hot and ranty as we cover a range of weird and wonderful topics in Linux, open source, gaming and more.

Apologies on the delay with this episode but we're back! As usual, it's a very casual and frank chat between two friends (myself) and GOL contributor / Linux livestreamer Samsai about many different Linux-related topics.

I am the owner of GamingOnLinux. After discovering Linux back in the days of Mandrake in 2003, I constantly came back to check on the progress of Linux until Ubuntu appeared on the scene and it helped me to really love it. You can reach me easily by emailing GamingOnLinux directly.

I really want to switch to Wayland myself, but xfce4 doesn't (or at least didn't) support it, and I've yet to get it working with Enlightenment.

Pipewire might also maybe one day get me to try something other than dmix, though I've never had any problems with it.

Xfce on Wayland is coming, but it'll take a while. As usual, Xfce isn't for the impatient among us.
I wish there wouldn't be these political bundles.. The recent events and doings of all sides have not been about positive energy.

I ended up going away from xfce4 because it needs spidermonkey, and that just took forever and a day to build (and sometimes fails anyway).

And if you're wondering why it needs spidermonkey, dependencies are fun: xfce4 needs thunar with udisks, which needs polkit, which has configuration files that for some damned reason need javascript and so pull in spidermonkey.
(grumble grumble grumble)

So I switched (back) to Enlightenment.

To be fair, we didn't start the fire. It has for quite some time been burning, really since the world's been turning. No, we didn't start the fire at all. Of course, despite us not trying to light it, we are still fighting against it.

Hey, that'd make for a good song!

Ain't that the truth! Most people now are just too afraid (of being labeled as something) and will not step up to the mainstream media narrative ....

Or maybe people in general are kinda just fine with a massive bundle that has a ton of good games for dirt cheap prices and the money goes towards legal aid and bail? I know, it's a pretty wild idea.

Riiight. Yet i think you do understand what i actually tried to state there. Because i know what you're saying. Of course it can be taken also just so. A dirt cheap bundle.

Hmm? Who's legal aid and bail are you talking about?
