I actually prefer the discussion when Tess is on, as she actually knows something, and corrects the guys when they go off base with something more technical or in the corporate IT arena.


I don't hate Tess, but my problem with her contribution is that pretty much everything she says about Microsoft and Apple makes we want to scream "NO!!" To say that her viewpoint is that of a "LINUX fanboy" would be to putting it lightly. I don't think Thom gets an easy ride at all, and generally Thom says things that actually make sense - even if they are hard to hear for the fanboys. Kroc - yes he gets an easy ride, as his opinion swings like the wind. As for Tess, quite often she is completely wrong or working from an old crib sheet. Example? Any time she speaks about Mono, much of what she was saying about Apple this week and many other Apple and Microsoft related angles.

I, for one, have decided not to automatically listen to the podcast in the future, because it isn't giving me any value. I don't expect that to mean anything, but there you go. This is *me*, not people in general - your mileage may vary.

I invite you to be on the show, seriously. I think it’s a whole different thing to actually be there, than to comment on it. The show is just a bit of fun; some seem opposed to that idea.

Kroc, I'd be extremely interested in contributing too.. I feel I have something to say and as a pro developer in a very Microsoft orientated environment, with a personal preference for Apple products outside of my professional IT wanderings. I've been very in to Alternate OS for the longest time (a former Amiga, Acorn RISCOS and BeOS user) I think I could add some depth.
