yeah I heard good things about it. I'm not really a linux fan mostly because I haven't got a lot of experience with it. I did recently work with raspbian and have once installed a triple boot system with win7, win10 and ubuntu... So I'm not a total noob i guess...
Might look into it, but I leave on a holiday the day after tomorrow so it'll have to wait until after that.
oh and you're right the demo is unlimited in time. I confused it with a demo of g-wizard I also wanted to try.
btw what post do you need to use with linuxcnc?
