the upgrade had the xxx.10 version installed. I just created a symbolic link to 
the old name to get it working, but later updated the program to a new

<div align="left"><font face="Arial"><span style=" font-size:12pt">The java works on both windows and linux, but with Fedora I had to use 
dos2unix on the startup script that it creates for it to work.&#160; Has a nice option, 
where you can have all 24 function keys displayed at the bottom, and use 
the mouse to click on. I had to change some key mapping to get it to work 
the way I wanted, but it was easy. </span></font></div>
