  • Linux Based Front End Platform LinuxIce v2.0 Released

    Could the Linux community have a fully featured alternative to Windows based in-vehicle front ends? The answer could be Yes.

    The OpenICE organization announced the release of LinuxICE 2.0, codenamed "Anino." LinuxICE is based on the Ubuntu operating system. However, thanks to a team of international developers it looks nothing like it and it has been heavily modified and optimized for use in a vehicle environment.

    Some of the features of LinuxICE include:
    • Build-in Navigation
    • Media Playback
    • Support for many add-on devices, ex. OBDII Scantools, HD Radion, Touchscreens, etc..
    • Designed to be stable, fast, efficient and easy to setup and operate

    Here is a screenshot:
