  • OS of choice?

    I'm curious do most of you develop for linux/bsd based or windows os's? I personally use a lot of software for linux (xmms for music, freediag for obd ii sensing, gpsdrive for handling the gps, and of course airsnort for finding wireless networks and connecting). I was wondering what software of choice do you have here, and how it performs. I've been meaning to check out the dashpc distro made for in a car, but currently I just play on my laptop, haven't gotten a dedicated computer or touchscreen yet... Maybe some other day...
    Just curious

                  overall it seems if you want a full blown feature rich system without to much hassle one should go with linux. when i first started to look into carputers i expected linux to be the king but alas it really doesn't seem to be. I'm probably going to go with windows 2003 enterprise server because I'm a member of MSDNAA so i get it for free, and some claim that it starts up a heck of a lot faster than XP. we'll see though.
                  don't worry i know i usually don't make much sense

                    I use Win2k Professional, because I am using older hardware and I didn't want to wait forever to boot.

                      How in the world would you put the special AirPort card in a PC? Mine is a Mac anyway but it's too old to AirPort. I just use a zip drive to transfer.

                            MSDNAA is Microsoft Developer's Network something something.
                            Basically, if you're certified by Microsoft (MCSE, MCDBA, etc.), you get the copies of all the products that pertain to your certification.
                            If you work in a shop that's a MS certified business parter, then the shop gets ALL their software (including betas) free.

                            It's primarily for testing, development, etc.

                            But some of make personal use of the software...
                            Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
                            How about the Wiki?

                              HAHA.... o ...excuse me :|

                              I recommend NOT going with any "server" if you want faster boot times.

                              Doesn't matter if it 2k server er 2k3 .. I refer to them as "the tanks" of MS OS s... they might take a lil while to get up and running, but it takes a lot more to bring them down/slow them down.

                              ....throw that out the windwo in the case of a car PC ...it will be up and down all the time.
