Have fun!

For any of you that already have a Linux instance, or perhaps  Linux
inside VMWare Player or Microsoft Virtual Machine, here's another
something-something to play with:


That's a pre-compiled Xastir for any Linux that is LSB-compliant
(Linux Standard Base).  On some Linux OS'es you'll need to install
an "lsb" package first to make them compliant.

The package up there is fresh as of today and includes Shapefile
support, topo support, online map support, the list goes on an on.

See the README.txt file there to see just how easy it is to
install and run:
