Going Retro

After having many many problems with Windows 8.1 and compatible Serial cards. I’ve decided to go retro and bought a Shuttle X mini pc, I am going to install it with a lightweight version of XP (asset and feature stripped) I don’t need a lot of the stuff on it. In fact I don’t even need keyboard and mouse drivers once its installed.

The plan is to set it up to run VNC Server, and then VNC into the Shuttle remotely, of course its going to be sluggish if the network gets heavy usage, but I am intending for Digital using FLDigi and then all the logs pumped to my main machine running mySQL This should solve all the windows / serial issues in one fell swoop !
