Could I suggest that, given that you're just starting out, that you
start out with UHD, rather than
 "classic", for one, there are now daughtercards that aren't supported
at all by "classic", and that
  will get "worse" over time, as more daughtercards are added, etc. All
new USRP driver-side
  development and bug-fixing will happen on UHD.

Since you don't have any "legacy" that you need to be backwards
compatible with, it's a good point
 to simply commit to UHD.
