That's my concern, Keith. After some effort, I got UI-View and the
PMapServer to run under Vista. I haven't tried Windows 7 yet. I am
very concerned that future Windows versions will become incompatible
with UI-View and UI-View users will be forced to find something else.
What that "something else" is, I don't know.
As for features, the only concern I have with UI-View is mapping. To
me, an APRS client that does not have pan and zoom maps based on
regularly-updated map data is not worth my time. Luckily, we have the
PMapServer. But, to my way of thinking, an APRS client should have
that capability built-in.
