What advancements could Windows (95/97/nt...etc) bring to contest logging
software?  Would it be worth the trouble?  Would networking be easier/more
reliable?  This might be a good topic for discussion.

I use DOS 5 on all my machines, with Win3.11.  I never did buy
the 95 upgrade,  and to quote a favorite band of mine, "I'm breathing
so I guess I'm still alive".  My work gets done.

I too like the "open-ness" of Linux... I it also, and yes, it's a
real operating system.  More power than I know what to do with.
CT, NA, TR... any hopes of seeing a Linux port of your software?
