My ham computer has died (the motherboard) and I'm going to replace the
entire box with a newer and smaller one (the one I used in Friedrichshafen
to demo your software).
Right now I've got only XP in German installed on it.
I prefer to use English for my private stuff, so I must do a new build
About 6 months ago you told me there were some advantages of 98 over XP but
I can't recall what you said. So while I'm at it, perhaps it would be
better to do a dual-install and put 98 on the C drive and XP on the D drive.
This has the advantage that I could run DOS in native mode on the C drive
for stuff like CT, etc.
Otherwise, for all other non-ham stuff, I prefer XP over 98.
My most often used applications are email and running the transceiver from
your software. I also surf a lot from this computer, especiall when looking
for ham-related stuff. Until now the ham computer has been running 98.
Of course the simplest solution would be to use the new computer with German
XP (only). All I have to do is plug it in. But then running DOS is
difficult - but I only do that a couple of times a year in contests so I
could use a laptop then. But if you have some good reasons for still
keeping Win98, then I'll re-install everything.
As soon as I get the new ham computer sorted out, I'll order the Jupiter
software from you.
