Yes linux requires a little bit more than a simple click, in the other hand when it is right configured, there's no need to come back and click left, right, up, down, underOriginally Posted by Tidder
so psone screen...is something like that ?
or some specialized task like that ?
imagine your poor windows corrupted while using your gps....where am i ?
In the middle of the nowhere BSOD "Please Allow to Send this Error Report"
And no...this is not GPSdrive
For a long term serious solution, linux only, there's no substitute...

Well, I am sort of comfortable working with both Linux and Windows. For carPC, I have to go with windows.
Why? Software. There are many GPS apps that available to Windows but not Linux. Sure you can use Wine to run iG or the like, but it isn't as good as running on windows.
If you get BSOD on Windows while in GPS, the system really screw. I mean if you setup/config it right at the first place, there is NO way you get BSOD. But if you do, it's time to trouble shoot and replace hardware. It's much easier to get software/hardware/driver for windows machine than linux.
With desktop environment it a totally different story. I manage to get BSOD (XP SP2)on my desktop several times, but never on carPC setup.
BTW, lately, I been using SuSE 10 on my old desktop machine for surfing and simple stuff and convert my other desktop to a HTPC.
Yeah, that was a special version of linux if I remember correctly, installed into a porche with PSone screen... I KNOW IT CAN BE DONE. I've found the timings I need for my PSone screen to work with my EPIA 800. I'm not a complete retard... I didn't say OHH PSONE SCREENS DON'T WORK WITH LINUX STUPID NOOB.Originally Posted by kraft
Totally disagree. I've been running a CarPC for probably 4 years now. My windows XP has never corrupted... People always say that linux is so much better. How does it better protect against bumpy roads? It has just as much of a failure rate as windows in this situation I bet. What happens when your linux goofs? Can you throw in your linux cd and do a repair?? Nope, lol, not that easy... esp for someone that's never/hardly ever used linux. If you grow up with it, or take the time/classes to learn it, yeah no prob. But if you're just jumping into it with no prior experience, windows mo betta.
Can you build a linux package that will load on almost every computer out there with little or NO driver searching? And if you do have to find drivers, do they install with ease... no. Linux is NOT EASY to use. Why is Windows the most widely used operating system when Linux is even free?? EASE OF USE and program support. Plain and simple.
Here's a challenge. Take your linux. Have a buddy take Windows XP. Give them both a Dexxa webcam. Who can have it working first? What's that? Windows XP already has drivers for it?? Wow, that was faster than I thought...
The best resurrected frontend I've ever used, period.
