> ==================================
> WinXastir is a packaged CDROM, available from Lintronix, to
> provide an easier and quicker method for installing both Cygwin
> and Xastir on a Windows computer system.
> Note there are no guarantees this will work.  This software
> depends on a large number of libraries and operating system
> dependencies.  I and many other Xastir users test and use
> it daily.  However, every computer and every installation
> is unique and may not run Xastir.   The WinXastir disk was
> developed to simplify the downloading, installation and 
> execution of programs and resources freely available on
> the Internet.  There is no warrantee that it will run or perform
> any specific function on any computer.   The Xastir mailing
> list is the preferred source for Xastir and Cygwin installation
> issues.  For questions or suggestions specific to the WinXastir
> CD - please Email to winxastir at lintronix.com.
> The readme1st information is enlightening and re-inforces what many (but
> certainly not all) users have reported. I guess you "Takes your chances".

The Amateur Radio software model is broken and we're getting quite 
literally just what we're paying for.
