Having piddled about for a number of weeks with the 64 bit edition of Ubuntu I think I’m going to take the plug and install the 32 bit version on the main computer at home on the internal disk. I am always full of hope that this will be the distribution that suits me but I can’t help think that my favourite application (Ham radio Deluxe) will never run under wine and I’m going to be stuck with a PeeCee that doesn’t do what I want it to.
I’ve moved email and with the ever useful Hubdog and everything else onto my trusty Dell x50v so I shan’t have to rely on Windows for a while, but just to be on the safe side I’m going to keep hold of the Windows Media Centre edition drive so I can put it back if I end up pulling (the rest of) my hair out.
So whats the plan
Ham Radio Deluxe
I think that will do for the weekend. After all it is the last few stages of the Tour de France
