    What types of controller boards does OpenBuild control software work with? If a board works with Mach3/4 will it work with OpenBuild control software?

    I plan on running OpenBuild control software on a Pentium Dual Core PC. which OS is prefered, Windows or Linux

    I have parallel and USB ports available, any preference here?.

    OpenBuilds CONTROL supports Grbl and Smoothieware only.

    For LPT based breakouts checkout LinuxCNC

    Windows will always be the best platform for OpenBuilds CONTROL (approx 80% of the userbase is on Windows)
