    If Microsoft built cars you would need to restart your car, then it would perform illegal operations and crash.

        yeah, they've been quietly working on this for a while. I think I posted a link from Channel9 a while ago showing a single-din solution they were testing that was completely voice controlled. No screen necessary. Pretty cool.

        Now, this seems pretty interesting as well: http://www.pcworld.com/resource/arti...RSS,RSS,00.asp

            A friend has just bought an X5, went to see it. It takes about 15 seconds to boot into the system. The only thing it shows whilst booting is BMW.
