Done. Replaced an option w/ no votes.

Once a vote is placed for EstlCAM, no further edits will be possible.

Anyway to add gsat to the list? If it wasn't by luck of me coming across this software on Google/Shapeoko forums, I would of never heard of this gem made by wlanfox!

Unfortunately, no. There's at least one vote for each option, and we're using the max number, so no further edits.

FWIW, GCS was listed on the wiki: http://www.shapeoko.com/wiki/index.php/ ... ntrol#Grbl and I've updated the listing w/ the new name change.

I've been using CNCJS for a couple weeks now. Ran UGS for a couple years and finally got tired of VNC and the tiny resolution of my RasPi touch screen. CNCJS is an amazing piece of software. It's full-cycle (don't have to use other software to suplement it), headless (don't have to physically touch or "remote in" to my RasPi in order to operate it), and autonomous (once I start the job, I can disconnect completely from the RasPi and it will keep chugging away). Lots of great features. Highly recommend it.
