I am nearly 73, and very much a newbie as far as Linux, etc., are concerned, but I run Ubuntu 12.04 as my OS. I needed a weather station program to link with my WH-1080 and my son, who lives in Australia, pointed me to this one. So I downloaded the software and started to build the program. Together with a little help from my son, I did it, and it all works. If I can do it, so can anyone else. I am looking forward to the progression of this program.
