About this Episode

Why do you use Linux and what problems do you run into? Both Noah and Steve make a value based decision when approaching tech, this week we dig deeper into why we choose to run Linux on the desktop. Could you power a 12v light, or 100 watt Ham Radio with a USB-C battery pack? Noah will tell you how doing so gave him light in his garage. Buckle your seat-belt, it's a packed show!
