Goodbye Window XP – For Robots

For sometime I have used Windows XP for my robots, but now that I have been able to get text-to-speech and vision via webcam handled via Linux, I think my days of using Eclipse as an IDE and WindowsXP are coming to a close.

Using WindowsXP has been fine for the most part, but the overhead and licensing of installing a new version and configuring the box was a pain and remote access via RDP took resources and bandwidth. I am confident I will be able to use Ubuntu for the next robot, but I am uncertain as to the resources required to run it.
