I quite enjoy the Linux Action Show podcast – in the last episode one of the hosts had quite the rant against Google and its ownership of data. He suggested that he’d put together his own suite of tools to get off of Google and back into FOSS and data ownership. In the most recent episode Bryan Lunduke shared the first half of his efforts. These include DuckDuckGo (and three others) for search, FengOffice for document collaboration, and RoundCube for mail, and EyeOS to tie it all together.
This podcast was this morning’s commute listening. First uses of DuckDuckGo and IxQuick were not particularly spectacular, though I may be too used to Google search and other engines will need to train me. I’m especially interested in checking further into Feng and EyeOS and might report further once there’s time.
