Degrees of Freedom is a podcast about Free-Libre Open Source Software brought to you by Courtney Schauer and me. We're still exploring goals and dreams for the show (in other words, the degrees of freedom are high) but we do know that the show will be bi-monthly (in the fortnight way, not the every two months way) and will start with reviews of different applications for GNU/Linux.

  • Guayadeque

I've been in need of this for a while.

Thanks for your show. You two are great together. I hope you'll be back for more. I've always heard that Amarok was very good, but I've never been able to quite wrap my head around just what it wants me to do. You've given me a good reason to try again, and a good place to start. But I'm even more excited to try out Guayadeque. It sounds like the almost perfect music player. I've never even heard of it before. I installed it right after hearing your show. I can't wait to get a bit of time to try it out. Thanks again for the great episode.
