hm... interesting. As I plan a living + working on a boat in 2016 actually I think about such tasks.
In my office I run 50% on Ubuntu for now... but I like to get rid of Microsoft. I like to switch completly to Ubuntu. Made good experiences with.
My computer network and file server (already runs on Linux
for backupping/data outsourcing) shall give me the option to get access to all boat datas via desktop
solution on the screens, inclusive software
for routing planning + weather navigation
Actually I like the EDO Instruments
"front end" for vessel monitoring
(which I run as trial version
for testing on a Microsoft mashine virtually with a simulation).
EDO realized the latest software
version in May 2015
... You can find the announcement on this FOrum
I may address following question:
Which producers of Hardware components
(Chart plotter, wind
log, speedometer, fish
finder/depth finder, GPS, radar) can be connected via interface
(not urgently Edo Instruments) with Linux ?
Does it need a kind of hardware
(physically interface), e.g. the DMK box
And has anybody here experiences with NKE
+ centralized vessel monitoring ? (NKE is seen often in France
and on faster Trimarans.)
Tks for anybody with some more details about these three questions.
