What Operating System do you use for Computers onboard.

Interesting to see.

Re: What Operating System do you use for Computers onboard.

Mini PC running XP pro is the 'ship's computer'.... essentially just running AIS, Sailmail, and OpencPN/Burgle BrandCmap.

All other tasks are down to a Macbook Pro.... with VMware fusion... which can and has done all the previous mentioned stuff.
