Mark Shuttleworth on Ubuntu, Larry Ellison, the OpenOffice mess, and Google

Open Season. Again.

That's right! It's time for another episode of The Register's Open Season podcast, this time with special guest Mark Shuttleworth. We talk about a wide range of topics, including whether Larry Ellison/Oracle can out-Red Hat Red Hat (nope), what strange things are afoot at OpenOffice (and whether developers can write good non-developer products), and a host of other things.

Well worth a listen.
