Linux Inlaws.

This is Linux Inlaws, a series on free and open source software, black humour, the revolution and freedom in general (this includes ideas and software) and generally having fun.

In this episode our two OAPs host Deb Nicholson, the general manager of the Open Source Initiative (OSI). Apart from riveting insights into open source licensing we discuss the greater FLOSS ecosystem and Deb's views on why wearing shoes is important in certain contexts, open source standards, law suits and the differences between US and Europe among other things.
