Lots of stuff should fit on a modern microcontroller with horsepower to
burn. I have refrained from buying some packet and APRS related
hardware, either because it was too expensive for the limited functions
it can perform, or closed source, or both.
I make my living as a sysadmin, and I don't like the idea of using a PC
for a remote location digi or any other application without some
environmental control. Maybe a hardened/embedded system as mentioned,
but not standard desktop hardware and certainly not anything running
