    To be fair i said Mach3 for simplicity, cos the documentation for linux cnc aint great.. i suppose it would be if it were updated as much as the software.. but the chap maybe good at Linux I personaly think its crap IMHO LOL (oh 30 years as software engineer lets me say that) LOL i know Jonathan likes it as well. but when the hardware side of things is sorted he will have a better idea of where he is and then who knows LinuxCNC could be the way for him..

    Rick you will be telling me that Fortran is cutting edge next...lol! Even Jonathan was against LinuxCNC..Until he actually tried it. Maybe because he actually sat and read the documentation mind you may have changed his mind

    IT Performance Engineer tells me you are wrong ;-)

    PS

    Cut my teeth on Fortran, Cobal and Pascal........Cut them so badly forgot what the code looks like!

    Rick you should try working on the dark side. I spend most of my days trying to get 386 platforms to work in harmony with AIX, Z/OS and DB2. In the brand the new days of cloud computing (old node computing with the cable cut), whats that all about then?
