I hope this isn't off topic. I'm interested in learning more about Winlink, and see Paclink Unix is a linux client that supports the ARM processor.


I'm using Ubuntu 14.04 on a Samsung Chromebook, which I will be using for digital comms. Is Paclink Unix a decent client? Is there anything else I should try? TIA!

Are you sure you want to do this? This will open your computer to viruses, and hackers. Right now with linux you have protection of your computer.

Take a look at the discussion group.
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/paclink-unix/

Seems development still progresses, but like the main page says, is't not a
polished "off the shelf" application yet.

Ignore the troll's re viruses if you run anything other than Chrome OS on your
Chromebook. ALL OS's have their problems, just that some are not in the firing
line as much as others.

At least Ubuntu is fairly well respected and has stood the test of time, such as it
is. (The "new" 14.04 version may need some "settling in" however.) But at
least you can do what "You" want with it, not what Google will only allow you to
do.

(Note! I've had zero hands on experience with a Chromebook or Chrome OS, so
may be speaking out of my exhaust pipe of course. But I am aware that many
people have 'nix'd Chromebooks just like other PC's, and hare more happy with
them after that change, than they were when running the originally supplied
OS.)
