Distrohoppers' Digest

Posted 02-18-2022 at 04:36 PM by zaivala

I just updated my spreadsheets, on number of listeners (by episode) and number of distros reviewed (by date).

At this time, we have reviewed 65 distros in our 34 months of existence. These are only separated in our statics according to desktop if they are an Ubuntu spin... We don't currently have stats on which desktops we have reviewed, but that has always been part of the distro review.

We have had over 21,000 total downloads, according the the incomplete statistics...

More Podcasts

I have returned to mintCast podcast, holding up my #10 spot in the list of co-hosts by frequency and potentially moving up to as high as #8 if I hold on to the end of the year. https://mintcast.org

I am still doing my weekly news podcast, 10 minutes or less of news with zero advertising, Full Circle Weekly News https://fullcirclemagazine.org

And, as just mentioned, we are readying our 30th episode of Distrohoppers' Digest. https://distrohoppersdigest.blogspot.com...

Distrohoppers' Digest

Posted 01-24-2022 at 11:49 PM by zaivala

Next month's episode will be our #030th. We will likely be trying something new -- evaluating the same (sort of) distro from the eyes of a noobie-like desktop user AND from the eyes of a skilled tech. Our testbed baby will be Gecko Linux -- I will be doing STATIC Budgie, and Dale will be doing ROLLING with a different desktop.

We have grown to where, according to archive dot org, we are getting close to 1000 downloads per episode. We are not at all sure how complete this data is,...

Crawling Back

Posted 01-15-2022 at 11:59 PM by zaivala

As of last Sunday, I am back as a co-host of mintCast, in addition to my other duties as co-founder/co-host of Distrohoppers' Digest and news reader at Full Circle Weekly News.

I am able to do this due to an inheritance from my mother and my inability to stay at a job due to weakness resulting from an accident almost 2 years ago. So I have time on my hands and, until the inheritance runs out, enough money to live on.

I hope my listeners are happy to see me back on mintCast....

Happy Birthday To Me

Posted 12-04-2021 at 12:40 PM by zaivala

I never thought I would get this old (69). Never thought it would take so long for Linux to take over the desktop world. I outlived my parents (my mother died in January of covid-19), I just had my first 5-year anniversary (after many tries). I've been using Linux on and off since about 2002, and it's currently the only operating system(s) I use, has been since 2015. I left mintCast podcast back in April, but I'm still on Full Circle Weekly News (by myself) and Distrohoppers' Digest (with Tony Hughes...
