Sourcetrunk (Episode 016)

This episode is all about blasting, burning and killing each other online with the great Nexuiz. A beautiful open source 3D deathmatch game project based on the Quake Engine. Let's Fragg ! We'll also do fast follow-up on the reviewed software so far.

Hi there,

First time commenter. I have been listening to your Podcast for the past couple months. Great work! I am a realitively new user of Linux and Open source software so I really enjoy your blog. Anyways in this episode you mentioned a blog which links to lots of OSS but it was hard to get the URL from just the audio and I know you mentioned it would be listed on the site but I can't find it for the life of me. So just wondering if you could list it here. It sounded like Charlie Brown or something like that but I couldn't catch the full name.



Hi Kevin,

it's on this page, just under the screenshots of Nexuiz (

It's not really a blog with a lot of open source software on it, but more a plug to someone who delivers a lot of information about open source audio applications on Windows systems. And I wanted to thank him with a plug on the podcast. Check him out, maybe you'll like his blog.

thanks for the feedback,


Very good post, thanks a lot.
