I have been playing off and on over the last few years with a different Operating System altogether. When I first started to play with it, you had to boot it from within windows. It is now possible to download it, burn it to a CD and install it. It is called BeOS or Media OS. It can be found at BeOS Online. It is a really neat program. However, it doesn't have much in the way of amateur radio software. It does have gcc, so it may be possible to compile some stuff. Just thought I'd let everyone know of this.
