216: Firewalls On Linux & Google’s Change Of Heart On Tracking?

This week on Destination Linux, we’re going to discuss firewalls. Specifically, what the heck are they? Do you need to set one up? Does your distro have a default firewall and our favorite firewall software. Google is now a privacy ally…or at least that’s what they’re marketing. Later in the show, we’re going to discuss 0 A.D. and Steam Link enhancements for Linux. Plus we’ve also got our famous tips, tricks and software picks. All of this and so much more this week on Destination Linux. So whether you’re brand new to Linux and open source or a guru of sudo. This is the podcast for you.
