    I think things will be very locked down and inaccessable (not to say it would be impossible to hack, just tougher than an xbox). Even ignoring microsofts track record, in a car environment, there is a lot more that they have to worry about liability for.

    Wow! that's scary. Also, what if this happens... the dreaded "Blue screen of death". The only recourse would be "Please reboot your vehicle". recommended by the great B. Gates.

    I don't know about y'all but I could only stomache that video for about two minutes... if I hear anyone talk like that again (starting every freakin sentence with "so"), I'll shoot myself! Ugh! Thats just annoying! lol Other than that... yeah, if we depend solely on Microsoft, it'll be constant crashville!

    Later!
