Hi, all, another old-time Unix user here (Solaris and Linux back in the mid90s, currently a Windows pro) and ham newbie.
Not trying to nitpick, but I thought that Fedora (which I've never used, had already switched away from Red Hat Linux to Debian) was still based on the RPM packaged developed by Red Hat and Ubuntu (by Canonical) was a downstream variant of Debian, using Debian's package management format.
Not to say that there haven't been bridges between the two and lots of work to unify package formats and dependencies.
Either way, ever since HRD had their implosion I've been pondering whether to keep my ham laptop on Windows 10 or take a look at running in the Linux world, so want to make sure I'm up on the current differences and issues.

I've been using one for years on one of my Ubuntu workstations. With FLDigi, it is plug and play. With FreeDV, I had to scan the USB ports (trivial) to ID it. Take a look at your Linux command line instructions for identification of what is plugged into which USB port. The FLDigi workstation has been operating for years, it was originally a $10 yard sale pc that the seller said "won't work or something" ... uh huh.
FYI, Fedora and Ubuntu are in the same family of Linux flavors.
