What operating system will you use (Windows, Linux, Mac)?

The biggest problem people run into running GroundControl is with some older machines or operating systems that don’t have graphics drivers capable of running OpenGL (ES) 2.0. This is a requirement of the Python Kivy, which is what the control software uses for a GUI.

That being said, I run my Maslow with an old Dell Latitude E6400 w/4GB of RAM I bought off ebay a few years ago, running Ubuntu 16.04 Linux.

Also still in beta is another option called WebControl that can run on a raspberry pi, which is under active discussion in this forum.
