  1. Bill -
    Before you go through the pain of installing linux on your latop, check out Linux on Laptops to see what you're up against. Laptops can be a real bear to get linux up and running on, based on my experience with an old Satellite 510CS.

  2. Listening to SS#103 and you two talking about living in an air park: Keep the antenna restrictions in mind!

    Re linux on your laptop, check out the "Linux in the Hamshack" podcast, esp. episode #7 (installing linux).

    I'd recommend PC-BSD or Ubuntu if you're going for ease of installation/use. Of course, this is the Solder Smoke blog, so this may be too close to "appliance operation" for some folks. ;)

    There's a decent collection of ham radio software for either platform. See the list of ham radio software for FreeBSD. I'm not as familiar with Ubuntu/linux, but I know it's out there.
