Here is a great article on how to make Ubuntu look like Windows 7. It is a well done article with all the command line steps to do this. This would be great to help new Linux users feel at home and maybe not have to go to Windows 8. I will try this on one of my machines to see it for my self. If anyone has done this, let me know what you thought. Check it out here: Here_s_how_to_make_Ubuntu_Linux_look_like_Windows_7

LINBPQ is the latest Linux version of BPQ32. John Wiseman G8BPQ/GM8BPQ, has done it again! This looks to be a good direction to go. I was dreading to change my BPQ node from XP to a newer version of Windows. Now I can just use a linux version and not worry. I have a computer with the latest Ubuntu on it so I will give this a try. I will keep you posted on how it goes.

I have been looking at all the different Radio go boxes on line and I have not found one that talks to me. All I have seen look good and function well, but I really don't like the idea of mounting everything in a box and working out of that box. I am working on a go box that would contain a complete station. The box I am planning around is the Plano 1819 Sportsman Trunk. This platform has many advantages such as big but not too big to move around. I would like any ideas out there, just remember I want the complete station. Check out the box at the link.
