  • Should i Install microsoft office?

    Should i install microsoft office, or do you guys think its a waste of space on the HDD?...

    IMO, in the car, waste of space... Doubt you'll be working in spreadsheets and/or reading/typing documents while driving or even just sitting there.

    The only thing useful would MAYBE be outlook, but considering I don't use outlook, I don't know how it would be functionality wise in a mobile environment...

      Do you need Office in the car? If so, install it. If not, don't.
      Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
      How about the Wiki?

        Hmm well its an odd question... if I had more space I think I would but I guess not. Really I guess I should have made the question more clear, it was really what would be the benefits and ^ gave me my answer lol

        Btw darque do you know a good syncing program for home networking? My "home group" doesn't work on my network for some reason... never has.. I just want to sync my music, videos, and pictures over wifi. Thanks a ton.

          There's no really good sync application that will ensure your files are the same on two different computers. You can try using synctoy. I've used it before and it works well, but it's not automatic so you'll have to manually start the process when you want to sync your files.

          If you are sharing folders between one Windows 7 computer and another (your carpc), on the carpc you can right click on one of the shared folders and select "always available offline", which is supposed to keep files updated. I haven't tried that myself, but it might do what you want.

            I don't rely on sync programs. If I want files in two locations, I copy them.
            Drag & drop FTW.
