Actually, the first thing I install on a new computer is Linux
(OpenSuse, usually), then put Windows in the virtual machine, if I need it.
But, to Drew's question, consider APRSIS32 for APRS use. There's even
some satellite tracking capability, so you know what other APRS stations
are within a satellite's footprint.
Also, FLDIGI sound-card digital software, and MMSSTV for slow-scan TV.
Oh, and the AO-27 schedule prediction software.
Enjoy the new computer; I'm looking to do the same soon. Mine is getting
senile (forgetting it has one of the disks)...
