      In no particular order:

      1) Fusion Brain
      2) ObdLink (Does that count? He's a forum member afterall)
      3) RevFE (C'mon, I HAVE to.)
      4) XPort (Only because it works great for so many other people than I)

      I'll think of more and edit later

          1. LinuxICE <-- Come on, it's a friggen OS!
          2. Roadrunner
          3. Fusion Brain
          4. OBDGPSLogger
          5. Carbon

          LinuxICE may not be as useful as Roadrunner (yet). But because it's a self contained OS with near limitless potential, I think it's by far the most ambitious project in this forum. To illustrate it's scope, 1-5 on every single person's list before my post is encompassed in the LinuxICE project.

          Also note, LinuxICE isn't my brainchild, it was born by the mp3car community. I just believe in it and work on it.

            1. Road Runner. I think this piece of software truly jump started the carpc scene. Finally something that can replace the radio and is usable. I cant believe I used to run an oversized winamp skin + a clock widget on the standard XP desktop before I found out about RR. Huge community support, looks great, lots of customizability yet you dont need to be a rocket scientist to use it. Even though I use CF now, I have to say RR is by far the best free front end hands down and will probably be the best for years to come. The huge user community for RR speaks for itself.

            2. Serial port shutdown controller. I dont think anyone uses this anymore, but before I had a DC-DC, this neat utility made my bulky inverter based carpc feasible.

            3. Fusion Brain

            4. FreeICE. Not sure what happened to this FE, but it had alot of potential.

            5. Capture!

              1. Gotta agree with Kev on LinuxICE as it is a true community developed OS for in car computing. I'd subtract points only for it not being as full featured -yet.

              2. Old-school is Frodoplayer. Talk about the early standard!

              3. Fusion Brain

              4. XPort

              5. RideRunner

              Each one is a community developed slice of problem solving heaven.

                1) OpenMobile (if we are counting in-development prodocts/software as well)
                2) Fusion Brain (come on, so much potential and uses there)
                3) LinuxICE (i have tons of respect for anything Linux based)
                4 and 5...not sure yet...may edit later

                Note: My first vote is not because I am working on it, but because I truly believe the vision of Justchat_1 for the software he is developing for this community, using this communities support. Anything opensource gets my vote.
                And if I could create an award for most relative poster to these boards, a poster who strives to further the capabilities of others, and to educate others, I would have to once again go with Justchat_1. And a honourable mention to the lovely Heather, for always being such a help to me and to others on these boards.

                Thats my $0.02...or $0.10 seeing as how long this is...
