Back by popular demand, the guys over at The Linux Action Show have brought back the Big Show format. They will still be doing the whole YouTube video thing, including In Depth Look and other software and hardware reviews.
So, what does this mean for our caped crusaders?
While this was a great idea to start to reach a wider audience, they were met with much resistance from the die-hard fans of their show. Not buckling, they continued on, producing some seriously awesome shorts focused on specific items such as Miro and FreeNAS.
I was unsure about this switch, but I was definitely getting used to the new format. I have everything set up through iTunes, so I didn’t even have to switch feeds in order to still receive the mp3 episodes (I listen in my car, so no need for the video feeds). I didn’t see much difference, and I could skip any topic that I didn’t feel was relevant to me.
But there’s just something about the chemistry of the layout of The Big Show. As Bryan admitted, I also like the chance for him to sit and bitch about a random topic for minutes at a time. I’m glad to hear good solid discussion about topics that are relevant to the Open Source and Linux worlds as a whole.
If you were put off by the change of venue and format, or you have just fallen out of the loop, go and check out Season 10 Episode 1 of The Linux Action Show and bask in the glory that is a Platinum Podcast.
