Subject: Running WinSDR 3.03... under linux?

Hi all.

     I had been having trouble with WinSDR the past couple days.  The 
program was generating a windows fault and closing, loosing all the data 
after about 1 hour of running.  Despite uninstalling and re-installing, the 
problem persisted...and I lost the traces of the recent pacific-rim quakes!  
Now this is after several months of flawless service.  Personally, I don't 
believe it was WinSDR causing the problem.

     I took this as a sign that maybe some experimentation was in order, so 
I have moved the whole system to an old celeron (500MHz, 256MB, 16GB HD) 
that I had laying around, onto which I have loaded Mandriva Linux.  I now 
have WinSDR running under Wine and it is working quite well (at least for 
the past 12 hours).  It was not especially difficult to set up even though I 
am quite new to linux. Anyone else using linux as a basis for their data 
collection? Thoughts?
