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 - sadly missing Martin as he buggered off to do something else - the remaining Inlaw hosts Wim Taymans, inventor and brain behind Pipewire, a new approach to Linux audio. Don't miss out on this episode if you're fed up with Pulseaudio (hello Martin :-) or find Jack just too complicated for every-day usage - you may see audio on Linux from a different perspective after this episode... Never mind those of you who are looking for a crash-course on audio on Linux - this episode is for you!
