Hello all, first post by a new user but had been toying round with building an in car pc since before the days of mp3 players...
Just decided to take the plunge, hinging on one crucial aspect....OS / software.
I see the adoption of XP as a very messy, cumbersome and 2nd rate solution - I would have thought a large communiuty would have produced a dedicated solution such as using XpE or CE but apparently not!!
I know nothing about Linux but have always heard good things.
Whats important to me is just a very simple media player car pc, based around a small processor and large HD.
Can anyone tell me how they find the Linux solution - id want a pretty near instant boot time (def sub 10 seconds). Simple interface and absolute reliability.
IMHO its just not worth all the expense if their isnt great software to support it, otherwise i could buy a DVD headunit or use an IPOD and jack.
Many Thanks, Would really appreciate some informative answers! Andrew
