Great Linux Podcast

This year I started purchasing Linux Format magazine which is produced in the UK. It’s expensive in Australia at $19.95 an issue but it’s very informative and I enjoy reading away from the computer. The target audience is people that use Linux from day to day and want to get more out of it.

There are great tutorials  and reviews of many applications. There’s always several articles that draw my attention that I feel I must read.

From the Linux Format website, I discovered they also produce a podcast once a fortnight. The podcast is equally as informative but in a light hearted way. It is very entertaining. You learn a lot about what is happening in the world of Linux and it’s great to get a personal insight into the people that produce the magazine. My personal favourite segments are the discovery of the week and the challenges they create for themselves. For example, in one podcast hey challenged each other to work only from the shell for a fortnight.

For anyone interested in Linux I suggest you listen to their podcast at TuxRadar to see what I mean.
