For novel ideas about building embedded systems (both hardware and firmware), join the 27,000 engineers who subscribe to The Embedded Muse, a free biweekly newsletter. It takes just a few seconds (just enter your email, which is shared with absolutely no one) to subscribe. Embedded developers - both those doing hardware work and those crafting firmware - use a wide range of tools, but it can be awfully hard to distinguish the good from the ugly.

Well, this information is open and free, and it’s right out there. OS X is in no way part of your imaginary linux success story, so don’t spread FUD by claiming otherwise!

Wasn’t FUD the reason why you people hate Microsoft, and the reason why you use linux in the first place?

Simply double-click the downloaded file to install it.

Update Star Free and Update Star Premium come with the same installer.

Namely, where linux distributions generally are based on the FSF GNU software distribution for the ‘world’, Mac OS stems from Darwin, which in turn is based on BSD, and only certain parts are taken from the GNU world (such as the GNU Compiler Suite).

The rest of the OS is also not entirely like a linux distribution. Philip Freidin sent a very comprehensive chart of USB instruments, which is here .As with many of their supplies (I think) it has a power-on button and a button which effects the connection to the loads--a very nice feature.I can also stream captures (trigger-by-trigger) to disk files for later evaluation.All in all, a very nice and capable unit that I use on a daily basis.
