Now running Ubuntu 9.04 

I have upgraded all but one of my systems to Ubuntu version 9.04 using the Gnome desktop environment. The one remaining box to be done at this time is the main system in the ham shack which is currently using version 8.04 and I can't wait to get it up to speed with the new version. I need to make some changes to my home network or I would have it done already.

I haven't really posted much on the blog about Linux but I have become a huge fan of the operating system and despite the fact the you are somewhat limited for radio programming software I'm very happy without Windows in the shack. I don't worry about if the anti virus program up to date, as a matter of fact even though anti virus software is available for Linux I have never felt the need to use one and never had any problems as a result of that action.

If you have never tried Linux you should get one of the "live" CDs that will let you try out the operating system without modifying your existing Windows system. It is a little sluggish running it that way but it will give you an idea of what it looks and feels like. If you are looking for something new to try out in the ham shack give Linux a try. I think you will be surprised how much better this operating system is.
