LHS Episode #454: Bottles Deep Dive
Hello and welcome to the 454th episode of Linux in the Ham Shack. In this episode, the hosts discuss a project called Bottles, born of a concept from CrossOver Linux, which creates a quasi virtualization and containerization platform for running Windows applications under Linux. The discussion ranges from theory to installation and implementation and configuration. We hope you enjoy this episode and that it's informational as well. Have a great week.

I use windows 7, 10, Mac OS, Apple OS, and Linux Ubuntu. Each has its own flavor of uses in ham radio. I like Linux the best as I’m not hassled by sales when using. Apple is famous for attacking the iPads battery as well as the iPhone I use but is good for surfing. Windows I use is specific mostly to EchoLink and other like apps. I use this never for internet as it’s a trap for spam, malware, spyware, etc.. Mac mini is more for music and a learning tool. They are all interesting but a partitioned hard drive could remove some of the extra gear. As we shrink technology down I think soon a box with all flavors could become available. What I like about Win is that it is most easily used to load and try other software. I’m a guy who really has to push myself to understand the software tech. It just doesn’t come easy to everyone which many hams don’t recognize. We think that if we understand the hobby aspects we are also computer savvy. I know many who bought SDR name brand equipment and then sold it for more easy to use replacement equipment. Right now the hotspot technology has many confused with the programming.
