Stallman Resigns, Huawei does Linux, Deepin
Tic Tek Toe, episode 002 : In this episode, Evan and Marcel discuss the recent events surrounding Richard Stallman resigning from both M.I.T. and the Free Software Foundation. We also talk about another controversy, namely the ongoing security and trade concerns around Huawei and whether we should be worried about their new laptops running Deepin Linux. Even before Huawei was on Trump's list, there were some questions as to whether Deepin might include Chinese spyware. Finally, Marcel addresses some feedback about how he ends his episodes.  Links from this episode Stallman Resigns From MIT and the FSF Fall of the Clueless Nerd, from WIRED Magazine Huawei introduces Linux laptops Deepin Linux

Hell Freezes Over, Linux Journal Goodbye, lilocked
This is TIC TEK TOE, episode 1. In this, the first episode, Evan and Marcel discuss the signs that hell has frozen over as Richard Stallman speaks at Microsoft. They also discuss the end of Linux Journal and how that relates to traditional publishing, how to make money in an increasingly free digital age, and a new exploit targeting Linux servers. Sort of. Also, Marcel wants to register a complaint.
