Here’s the latest audio from MAKE Magazine! In this Make audio show, we interview Gordon Kruberg & Craig Hughes from gumstix, makers of the the smallest commercially available Linux computers!

Gumstix offers the smallest commercially available Linux computer. Because gumstix products are nearly half the price and a third of the size of competitors, gumstix enables software developers to create smaller and more price conscious products for the growing Linux market.

Forrester Research states that Linux and open source is now a mainstream competitor in the IT world, as cost-sensitive IT execs discover Linux on Intel’s compelling economics. According to Forrester, smart CIOs now set aside the religious wars to see the truth: open source is good enough for many data center tasks.

With significant growth expected in the IAD market, increasing demands within the SBC market, and the growth of the open source industry, gumstix recognizes the need for low-cost open source post-pc systems and peripherals.

    Loved this topic, and the guests were quite articulate. However they seemed to be using skype or a lousy cell connection while phoning in the interview and the sound was HORRIBLE! I understand that we’re all geeks and all, but please see if you can enforce a reasonable standard on the connections in the future, such as a real land line call. The host’s audio was fine, so it’s not the podcast itself.

    I understand that sometimes you have little control over these sorts of things, but if you proactively set a standard, or at least ask the guest to seek an alternative when it’s apparent that the connection is bad, then perhaps future podcasts can avoid needless suffering.

    But, all that said, cool show!

    This is the second show that I listen from the Make Magazine. I agree with RG, the audio quality from the guest is just too bad. The volume level from both guests is not the same. One is OK but the other is too low. I had to keep changing the volume of my car radio whenever a different person spoke. I listened this in my car and the experience was not enjoyable.

    I also listened to .Net Rocks show. Their audio quality is much better.

    these should be offered in the maker shed
