New shack PC...

David Davis
I am curious what flavor of Linux everyone prefers with respect to being
able to run the Elecraft utilities for the KX3 and other software
related to amateur radio.

Thanks in advance for the replies.

Ubuntu 14.04, 16.04 work well.  So does Kali.

I don't believe there are any Elecraft utilities that run on Linux.  You
could likely get away with VirtualBox to run a Windows VM though.

All the Windows-native Elecraft utilities work fine with Wine. Elecraft
also supplies Linux versions, though they may run downrev from their
Windoze counterparts.  If using Wine, you'll have to configure a serial
port as a DOS device (see
https://www.winehq.org/docs/wineusr-guide/misc-things-to-configure).

I run a service that redirects the community to the network and on the windows side network to virtual Com port. The elecraft utilities run without issue as needed. I'm running raspberry pi with noobs debian.

No problem with Debian 32 bit, a.k.a. i386 architecture.  They can be
run on 64 bit, a.k.a. amd64 provided multiarch is enabled for i386.
See:

I use
        Ubuntu 14, 64  bit - The Elecraft utilities work fine. USB Connections are also easy and stable
        Darwin - El Capitain - The Elecraft utilities work fine. USB Connections are also easy and stable
       

        No issues under linux at all as far as I can see.

Mint 17.3 and the K3,KPA500 and W2 Linux utilities provided by Elecraft work well.  I use WINE to run the W2 interface program because it is only provided in Windows.
