We sheepishly cover the latest news and events in Linux gaming as two hosts are feeling under the weather, and the third comes in late. So we added a fourth! Why not have a listen? Caution: this cast does contain one swear out of frustration at 23:13. While we try to keep things clean and edited so we can be listened to when and wherever, removing it would have left the conversation rather damp.
