I have recently acquired a new, never used, PXI-1031. It contains a NI PXIe-8100(Win7), and a NI 6225 M Series Data Acquisition.
My intentions for this unit are... Benchtop experimentations. Eventual integration into home automation and event display system.
My question is will this unit support Windows 10? Should I install Windows 10? If yes - Wipe drive and install? or Upgrade? I have never liked the upgrade path, but since this came with Windows 7 pre-installed I would not wish to loose any needed drivers or functionality. (Unit came with some software disks but no CD-Rom)
Should I use Linux? - which flavor would best support this hardware?
Any recommendations as to what I should add for software in order to be useful as a DAC?
