    BMW with OEM linux Atom system !!??

    Is this for real!!??? BMW with OEM linux Atom system with standardized sw units!!??

    http://www.computerweekly.com/Articl...c-standard.htm

    This is what we all want is it not?

    But will it happen? I had a look (for fun) in BMW car configurator and selected options for the X6. Add navigation, DVD etc and you are well over 10k!

    What do you think?
