So what you're saying is that I should use Windows, even though I don't want to? I did not know
that it was mandatory to use a certain OS in order to use the satellites. I also did not know that 
purchasing a piece of software was the only way to support AMSAT. Shame on me :)

I was just making a suggestion not based on the fact that it's free of charge (re-read my mail) but 
based on the fact that Gpredict supports other platforms as Windows.

And no, I don't feel guilty about not using Windows for my shack PC while I'm typing this on my Mac.

Have a lovely day.
