Make sure that you hit the 'REFRESH/RELOAD' button to ensure that you have loaded the latest copy of any page!

We are using side4linux to design, code and physically build a Machine Controller ( MC-1 or MC-2 ) for CNC metalworking Projects but side4linux can also be used for any electronic product requiring PCB design, AVR/ARM assembler and 'C' coding for Embedded Targets, general Linux 'C' coding for PC's or CAD/CAM for creating cut-files for 2d/3d machinery.
All within the Linux Gnome environment!
