Maybe it is the programmer ... but it also could be the OS.
I'm running HRD with Satellite Tracker here on a tiny Acer netbook with an Atom processor - NOT the Mr. Olympia of the processor world ... hihi. The Acer came with Windows XP Home, and every feature of HRD - including Satellite Tracker - runs perfectly for me.
By the way - so does SatPC 32 and Orbitron with WispDDE for Doppler control.
With HRD, the switch to or addition of another satellite is instantaneous, with no lag of any kind. And Google Earth tracks right along with it - which is one of the coolest features I've seen in any ham-related software.
As I said at the start ... I suppose the programmer could be to blame. But I intend to avoid Vista absolutely as long as I can.
73 to all,
