Thanks to everybody who is participating in this thread!
BugByte and kev000 my carpc heros!
Ok, a little over dramatic but, honestly, I do respect what you 2 are doing!!
Actually the idea for this thread came from you guys!
soundman98 and chronoglass are right.
However, kev000, just getting people motivated to get going is not really going to make it. (errr, no pun intended)
What I'm trying to do here is create an alliance of some sort. All of you developers who have been pioneering this hobby really should be out their getting your credit. Because it really is due! However, at the moment because you are all splintered and work to achieve the same goals are going to loose ground to folks who have deeper pockets and more time.
IF my hardware skills were beyond installation or IF my programming ability was beyond just the web I swear I'd helping you guys, but my skills aren't. However, I'm willing to help in other ways.
I'm imagining a system like OSX. Simple to install, use and is good enough for the masses. However, since OSX is still BSD (*nix) you can still sit down and use the terminal just like the rest of the linux crowd. I would love to see Apple step up to the plate on this but ... I'm not too interested in seeing Jobso ruling it with an iron fist either ... (ps, I'm a mac fanboi)
The hardest part to an alliance will be willing to communicate and work as a group project. Also, possibly agreeing on dumping M$ as the main OS. And the last deal breaker will be coming up with applications that work in *nix.
So, what do guys say? Would you be up for alliance?
