I'd have real serious doubts about that Petter, no reason to as LinuxCNC,
other than needing the RTAI patched kernel for its I/O, can live happily
with any common drive setup I have ever done over better than the last
decade. These guys, while fairly savvy with computers, are for the most
part, Machinists first as thats what pays the bills. Given their
druthers & spare time, or an itch to scratch, they would put their
efforts into a better gui to run it with. Or running down bugs and
fixing them. Generally speaking, its been years since I have
encountered a show stopper bug.
