Now Online: Novell Open Audio at LinuxWorld Expo

Our first ever “recorded before a live studio audience” editions of Novell Open Audio are now online.

For these interviews, Erin Quill and I took over Novell’s main theater at LinuxWorld. Several Novell Open Audio listeners attended both sessions, for which Erin and I both say thank you!! The support means an absolutely tremendous amount to us.

As previously reported, our guest on Tuesday was Nat Friedman. Rather than talk about SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop with him, we mostly chatted about desktop Linux, integrating Ximian with Novell, and how Nat got into desktop Linux in the first place.

Today we chatted with our pal Jeremy Allison, throwing him a bunch of softballs. Audience questions for Jeremy were a lot tougher than ours.

Here are some of the pics from our session with Nat:

  1. Judging by that picture of the 3 of you, I think Treat Williams should play Ted in the movie version of Novell Open Audio. Maybe it would only be a TV miniseries.

    Nat would have to be himself, and Erin would be played by that crazy carpenter/designer from Extreme Makeover, Ty whatshisname.

  2. Wish I could have been there🙂

  3. What no pictures of Jeremy? Was he snubbed because of previous comments about blogging? Or should we blame the cameraman? It’d be hard to interview and take pictures at the same time.

  4. Jeremy does not come out on film. You’d never even know he was in the picture, even if we were shaking hands in it. There’d just be a little “funny logic” around the edges of the pic.

  5. On Novell Open Audio

    I was worried when I first heard about Novell Open Audio because based on their past performances I felt there was a real danger Novell would goof this up and produce a series of gutless, infomercial-type marketing clips complete with poorly written scrip
