Ubuntu Win

I ever tell you I hate the program Putty? It’s just soooo poorly slapped together. The author has no concept of how a GUI app is supposed to look. I mean, awesome. free. yay. Somehow I never noticed you can directly get to your Serial ports in Linux without it! screen command. bash#screen /dev/ttyUSB0. That simple!

Now I don’t need to install crap, it’s easier on the eyes and more consistent with platform.

I did run into trouble though. My Ubuntu install won’t handle more than 2 USB-to-serial adaptors. Support forums at Ubuntu were not helpful. Basically ignored. Same thing happens with my 2×2 monitor setup. I was thinking of opening a case with Ubuntu, but I didn’t want to be charged it it’s something they can’t fix. Thoughts?
