Re: W4KYR reply # 47
Thanks for the heads up, I checked out the Linux Mint website and decided to give it a shot on this old IBM Think Pad (XP) in lieu of replacing it with a refurbished unit with Window 7.
Download the test disk first, and try it. The Mint test disk is very slow, the OS is not if you decide to install it. You might try Debian with Gnome 3, and there is a fellow who makes a disk for ham radio, that boots up and runs some flavor of Linux as well. FLDigi for data, and CQRlog for logging.
