  • New Windows Operating System For 2009

    What do you guys think about the next Windows operating system coming out next year? Think the multitouch enhancements could be beneficial to a car PC environment? It's the same interface technology they've been using in their Surface.

    Total amount spent so far: $1196.64

    You will probably spend AT LEAST 2x what you initially budget for your CarPC Project!

      How about touch enabled Windows Media Center?

        Multitouch would require a special screen, and would cost more than my whole car.

        I'll stick with Linux. They'll probably have it out before Microsoft gets it working right, anyway.

          When the OS comes out, there should be tablet PCs that take advantage of the mutitouch screen. You can use that screen just like TurboCad6 does currently in his installs.
          Software Developed:
          DS-ATX Controller Interface
          Laptop Shutdown Controller

          Considered Projects:
          TPMS Interface
          Bluetooth Handsfree Interface (WIDCOMM/BROADCOMM)

            Multitouch requires you to look at the screen. I haven't seen anything that beats tactile response devices like buttons or knobs. Possibly voice, but you can't control everything using voice.
