try Ubuntu 7.04
Google Ubuntu, either download from on-line or request CD's (no charge
for it or mailing) it usually arrives within week and half.
Also type: "google linux", book mark it and it will become your bible to
all things Linux.
Go to Barnes Noble and look in PC section for "Ubuntu" books. you will
find a book that explains the operating system very easy to understand
Finally, search for ham radio applications (there are many) that will
meet your needs.
I spent total of 4 weeks playing and learning the operating system and
on other aspects, almost 2 months before coming comfortable with it.
I dumped Vista and never looked back.
The 516 will be supported as will Omini's and Oerions.
You then have the best of both worlds, Ten Tec support and Linux
