Linux Desktop Weather Radar Application

Posted 03-16-2009 at 03:37 PM by raconteur (raconteur's rotunda)

As many of you know, I'm the creator and maintainer of StormPredator, a Windows desktop weather radar application (but I didn't choose the name!).

There are some Linux weather radar apps, but none that I've found that have the same sort of magic combination of ease-of-use and depth of features that some of their Windows counterparts enjoy.
