I asked and received permission to forward this.

Up front I want to say that the Linux/ham packages I have seen seem to
be very good. But maybe could be better.

10-10 does have a few rather specific needs for a package.

If anyone is interested reply to Mr. Steinkamp. I just thought this
might be a good place to post this.

Back at the convention in Mesa, Mel, KD5DE, and I had started a discussion about
the lack of amateur related software that is available for Linux, especially
software geared toward Ten-Ten operations.

Enter Microsoft's Windows Vista -- Since it is starting to hit the streets we are
going to find support and development for the Win9.x platforms pretty much shut
down. I also suspect to see support for XP, NT and 2K to disappear within the
next 5 years. This looks like a great marketing tool for both Linux and Mac!!

Over the past couple of years I have talked with a number of folks here in the
10-10 community express a desire to use Linux and possibly move away from MS
products all-together, but the lack of good, easy to use software has been the
deciding factor.

We are looking for folks who might be interested in helping develop a software
product for Ten-Ten that will run natively on all Linux platforms. While having
the ability to write code is a plus, it is the users and not the coders that
define the direction of a product.

If you would like to provide input and help with the development of this project,
please join our Linux discussion group. Click the link below and add your name to
the list and start tossing out ideas and brainstorms.
