I am using  a cheap on sale Linspire( linux)
Whole computer for $100.00 on sale at Fry's.
A great computer for the price.
These are cheap from Walmart and others.
If ham radio stuff works on them it is a good way to get into Linux cheap.
If  ham radio programs works on only one type of Linux, Linux is dead 
for Ham Raidio.
I am keeping one $10000 lisnpire in use for my E mail and ham radio 
programs if they ever become available.
And have a enough documentation to make them work.
