    My son is quite a bit enthusiastic about computer electronics and he
    wants to use an oscilloscope for his learning/tinkering around
    ~
    Oscilloscopes are not really mass-market toys, but very expensive
    pieces of equipment, so, I was telling him to check his options and he
    would now settle for a PC-based oscilloscope
    ~
    I am more of a software guy, so, I don't know much about it, but I
    was trying to make him understand that he could certainly not use a PC
    with a chip pulsing at a given frequency to gauge another one with a
    (n equal? or) higher frequency
    ~
    Am I basically right? What other aspects should be consider while
    getting a PC-based oscilloscope? Which other functionality are you
    throwing out the window when you use a PCO?
    ~
    Thanks
