      I didnt intend to start an OS war. there linux users who do ham radio work just as easily as those with windows. the firmware flash has nothing to do with being linux based. its what hardware chipsets and hardware. a simple lsusb -v would determine if linux sees the radio which is a start.

      I completely concur with Nick.  That is why I spent over $US1200 just to have a compact do-everything (160 M-70 cm) mobile rig that easily fits on my busy desk top, to supplement and compliment my building projects.  It has been my only major compromise to my personal commitment to build everything in my shack.  And I don't regret it.  Many hams started with a crystal controlled transmitter and a used receiver.  There are currently plenty of choices available to build something simple.  Genesis even had one in the past, but now out of production. There are a number of skill sets required to successfully build and implement a full-fledged SDR radio.  I think Nick's advice would be well-taken.  If you want to build, start with something simple.  My 2 cents.

      As ilustrated once again, one thing common to all Linux users is comical yet militant distaste of anything Windows.
      Once again, GensisRadio stuff is NOT Linux based. Also, to avoid bitter disappointment (and development of distaste of Ham radio in general)
      we don't recommend G11 as first and only HF rig.
       
      Saying all above, we are always happy to support anyone smart enough to make Genesis work under linux.
