OggCamp
A Free Culture Unconference

Today we interview Philip Newborough (aka corenominal) project lead for CrunchBang Linux and their community manager Rebecca Newborough. CrunchBang is a Debian GNU/Linux based distribution offering a great blend of speed, style and substance. Using the nimble Openbox window manager, it is highly customisable and provides a modern, full-featured GNU/Linux system without sacrificing performance.

In September 2011, Philip gave up paid employment to concentrate on personal projects and is now working full-time on CrunchBang Linux. Feel free to donate a over on his sitehttp://crunchbang.org/donate

I'm by no means a zealot about these things -- far from it! -- but the fact that this is .mp3 only seems laughably beyond the pale :)

cheers, keep the faith.

We're also in Ogg and Spx

Hi new-clinux,

Free software versions of the mp3 encoder and decoder have been available for years so there is no software freedom issue with the format. Many of our listeners come from parts of the world where software patents are not recognised, for the rest there are ogg and spx feeds http://hackerpublicradio.org/syndication.php

Ken.
