Not exactly, but not too far from the truth.  Let's just say that there's
a prevalence of computer hardware amongst the radio gear.

Actually, it would be a good place to sell copies of linux.  I've got a
friend that does nothing but go to various ham radio shows and sets up a
table selling various distros of linux (burnt copies).   

Likewise, one of the hottest crazes in ham radio is the IRLP project.  


Internet Relay Linking project.  Or, allowing tech class ops to use their
440 / 2m radios to talk world wide.  I've got a few complaints about the
project, but otherwise it's pretty impressive.
