Real SATA or USB conversion?

There are existing options to support SATA (search on Amazon)
Game changer ? I am being a bit cheeky when I say the Pi supporting
audio in besides just out on the board

Meh, when they finally get SATA support, that will be a
game changer. But not likely to happen for a long time with
the ARM architecture. 4 GB of RAM is nothing to sneeze at,
though. I can't imagine why someone would need dual monitor
support on a RPi.
Also, quick question, is it appropriate to ask questions on
this group if you've built your own version of the RigPi, but
used the image purchased on the SD card or other hardware
pieces from MFJ? Just wondering because there seems to be a
bit of hostility towards anyone who didn't buy the entire
completed unit or is trying to roll their own true open source
software. The spirit of Linux and the RPi movement was open
source from the beginning, and IMHO it looks like MFJ
intentionally closed the system via backdoor usage of
non-open-source graphics for the control software, simply to
sell images at an inflated cost. They are a small company and
entitled to earn a profit like everyone else, but I don't
understand the hostility on this board towards everyone who is
trying to assemble a true open source version of the unit.
OTOH, when Ten Tec introduced the Rebel and Patriot radios,
they encouraged experimentation from the open source
community, and even released the source code for the Pegasus,
Jupiter, Orion, and Omni radios for experimentation.
