Locked Re: WSJT-X better on Linux or Windows 11 #windows11 #linux

Bill Lederer

I've spent a significant portion of my career working with Windows in one
form or another. I would rather not spend any more. So I have many Ubunti
and a couple Freebsd and two OpenBSD in my fleet.

In fact, I would rather write software for logging for Linux/MacOSX/Freebsd
rather than use windows-based stuff.

Anyway I was happy to see Linux come long. I have used Ubuntu for many
years for daily email and browsing purposes. However I have always used
Windows for WSJT, on all kinds of machines from an 2gb A4 netbook on up. I
just got an ultra cheap Acer Travelmate B3 and it runs FT8 just fine. I
have never had a problem running WSJT on Windows. But the main reason I use
Windows is that my shack computer is also my bench computer, and the
software for my test instruments, DSO, DMM, LCR, etc. are Windows-only as
is my Elecraft software.

Meantime my old Lenovo X200 running Ubuntu 20 started having various
problems. I think it is time for a 'nuke and pave'. I miss it.
