I'm new to the forum after discovering OpenCPN
via a word-of-mouth recommendation. What a great product!
I thought I would mention that I am using the program on an eeePC running eeebuntu (an ubuntu-based Linux
OS developed especially for netbooks). The GPS
was plug-and-play. Haven't tried to connect the AIS
feed yet, but performance is amazing, given the diminutive size and limited horsepower of the machine.
Just to add my voice to those of the others who have already mentioned it, the new feature I would most appreciate would be a head-up/course up option.
Kind regards from the very chilly Eastern Shore of Maryland
