The installation experience has been varied (understatement), going very smoothly for some and struggling tooth and nail with others. As would be expected with the diverse hardware and software environments that abound with carPCs. There's a VERY strong effort on the part of the Centrafuse team and the user community to provide meaningful feedback, a LOT (I'm pretty surprised) of good videos and step-by-step descriptions of how to solve problems and get things done.
I've been running CF3.5 since it was CF3.2 and it has been very reliable and performed very well. It's certainly not perfect, but it Is improved and improving.
I did. No major issues at all - no issues installing crating databases, configuring basic things, resuming, etc.. Surprisingly the new market feature, a fantastic addition IMHO, worked flawlessly from day one. Very polished look and feel.
It's not perfect for me - if you like RRMedia you know what I mean, if you don't care for that, I can't see whats not to like with CF.
