    Um... I have 2 of the 3 above, and yes, they do.
    My point was, are they any harder to use than a Linux based one?

    oh, mono is going to support .NET better than wine will. If a .NET app is coded properly, it should work flawlessly on all platforms (the exception being that not all .net 3.5 features are supported by mono yet).

    My point was mainly focused towards the "those don't run Windows" statement

    It depends and is not really a fair comparison to the question at hand... A handheld GPS and cell are already preconfigured to work out of the box regardless what OS is on them and that configuration is there for a specialized task only.... The R&D is already done to make the underlying OS basically transparent to the end user. You could hand either of those to the average Joe and they would be none the wiser.

    A desktop/carputer running Linux however, is not (for the most part). Unless there is the same transparency (one click install for any program, cross-OS, for example), the underlying OS will make itself known.

    I like ubuntu.

    I think one of the main reasons for my getting ready to switch from windows, is ease of read-only setups. Ubuntu will be loaded up on a 4gb CF card, along with my GPS soft. I've had XP setup the same way for a while now, on a 2gb CF card, but the setup was just waaaay to much of a pain. Getting files from XPe, registry hacks, kernel replacement, etc. EWF was a hard beast to setup. Read only and a ram disk for linux? Easy easy...

    EDIT: Plus, iGuidance under wine is easy to get going as well, until Navit matures a bit.
