Well, my first impressions are that there is a LOT less tinkering and instability issues than I've suffered through so far with other FE's I've tried, with more of the things I use working beautifully. It is very fast to respond and my little $100.00 Foxconn Atom barebone build with W7 pro likes it just fine. I find I'm looking to offload stuff from the OS and hard drive rather than having to add more.
On the downside, the media library control is pretty spartan, but it works. I never was a fan of media player audio, especially after hearing my stuff played over Foobar, so I'll have to see how it works in the car. It really was a big difference when I changed to Foobar.
This is the closest I've come to having the Holy Grail of carpc (IMHO) with a working Bluetooth hands-free phone. I have a cheap working hands-free solution, but I never was satisfied not having it integrated so as to cut off music during a call.
I just ordered a Sony RM4xs wired controller and a Joycon USB interface to have controls at my fingertips on my old 1987 Thunderbird TurboCoupe with a 5.0 turbocharged engine. I already built in an Adesso wired touchpad into the console that is nice, but takes my eyes off the road for simple things. After experiencing the Sync in the 2011 Milan that is my daily driver, I appreciate having the phone and media controls near the wheel much more. I want to be able to enjoy the Tbird and not have the carpc be the weak link. Looks like I'm almost there thanks to ClockWork and Co.
Just when I thought the hobby was dying, I find I was wrong!
