lol, a podcast is some new internet shabangle that you can download an mp3 file of what somebody says and listen to it. Its like radio, but on the internet, and better than internet radio.

People probably say a bunch of stupid stuff though. That's lame.

Yes, I do. I usually put it on my ipod and then listen to it while driving. Sometimes I just listen to it on the computer.

Here are a couple podcasts I listen to:

NPR Science Friday
PowerUser

What are you talking about? In Linux I just download the mp3 file and use this program to download the file to my ipod:

Hmm :/ So liniux has a nice GUI and everything. What are its advantages over Windows? Is there a desktop? I admit I was under the impression it was run by a DOS type thingy that you type into. :shy:

Crap that's really awesome. What's the catch? Its not as user friendly or what? Its not like Windows is user friendly. Can I run Linux and Windows/Mac OS X at the same time? I know not everything works in Linux.
