Re: PSK1 Configuration and Windows

Well, it's a case of coding for what people have.  In my case, Windows programs
have a use.  DOS is practically useless for me, as I don't have an environment
which allows DOS apps to run in their full glory (try running a lot of DOS apps
under NT!).

For me, Windows or Linux are the useful platforms.  DOS is pretty much dead,
except for booting in emergency situations. :)

Depends on the ham.  :-)  Computing power isn't a big issue for me, got
multiple PCs on a LAN. :)

No need to sell Linux to me, I've been using it for years, and love it, but a
lot of things (sadly) still need Windows, so I run that as well.
