Actually, it goes the other way. UI-View will become incompatible
with the future OS versions.

Here lots of people install Ubuntu. It is far easier than it would be
for most of the readers of this list ot learn to drive stick-shift :)

In my opinion UI-View is obsolete. You have my vote for a product that 
is updated according to changes to the OS, and also has at least some 
support from the author. Preferably a multi-OS-product like there is
D-RATS for communicationg with D-STAR radios.
