So, for learning CW I use mostly CW-OPS website; LCWO.net which I really like; and MorseCode Masters.com
I am on the learning curve with "jLog" logging software which works with Linux, which my Nokia N800 uses as its OS (actually Maemo, which is linux based). We will see if I can get jLog properly loaded on the N800 and then use it in the field. I have my trusty mini-log-books also; one from Wilderness Radio and one from RS both of which I can use if I get stuck.
I have downloaded LTSpice IV for analizing circuits but have not used it yet.
I have DosBox downloaded to use with any old DOS programs.
That's about it.

So you are a Linux man ! I run Linux Mint 17 Cinnamon on a virtual machine on my Windows 8.1 machine. I never used Linux for ham radio. There are plenty of ham applications for Linux though. I am committed to using DXLab for my logging, DXing and award management. It is by far the best I've ever used. I was using Ham Radio Deluxe before that but never really liked it.

So, I am not very good with Linux, but would like to be. So many things to learn - my head hurts. I have an Asus Eee-901 running a slightly older Ubuntu on it; Ver 9.8 I think. I play with that some. I have an Acer Aspire One Netbook running XP. And out here in the shack I have an older desktop, a Compaq Presario running window 7 and dual boot capability to Ubuntu 12.
The reason I chose jLog logging software is that it is Linux based (Maemo) and I have it loaded successfully on my Asus (that was a challenge); and I am in the process of loading it on my Nokia N800 older tablet (Maemo OS), that I could use doing qrp while camping.
jLog has a nice look and feel to it very close to our paper logs we have kept for so many years; and it supports Linux well.
