Welcome to Episode 73 of Destination Linux

I’m Rocco and back this week is just Ryan but don’t cry to hard because we have a special guest Alan Pope who is filling in but never replacing our beloved Zeb and Michael.

Hi Rocco,
Cheers to y'all for Destination Linux, BDLL and all your individual channels..

PS. In the latest DL episode, someone made a joke about running Linux on a C64. Here's a picture that proves it can be done. And with Mint no less.. though after achieving this, as a result of severe sleep deprivation from not only the install - but the transfer from ISO to floppies as well - apologies, but I was too tired to neatly stack the 100,000+ 5.25 inch floppy disks I used for the install so I that could provide that photographic evidence as well :)

I hope at best it gives you a laugh (or four)..
Otherwise I guess a chuckle, chortle or possibly even a mild smirk may suffice... :)

Thanks for the great email Sean!
