    One thing to decide on is a name... Lincar? Carnix? MiniCar?

    I really think this is a great idea. With microsoft entering the playing field with an automotive specific operating system I think it's only fair that Linux push out some competition for it.

    Lets Get'R'Done!

    I am up for this, I've toyed with the same idea (that mythtv has kind of solved) , porting a lite mythtv.

    Shall we setup a sourceforge site?

    I've even got the same hardware, yeh. I agree lets keep the hardware spec'd and really not stray too far off from that, focus on the features.

    Brainstorming:

    ViaCar (my favorite, but kinda Via hardware specific although if thats the target of the distro there's nothing in the way..)

    MediaCar
    mmCar (mm for Multimedia)
    iCar
    xCar
    carma
    MythMobile

    Personally I don't like ViaCar, simply because it is hardware specific. It may start out that way but I think it is always wise to leave things, even names, generic for anyone who wants to get involved to feel included.

    How about something recursive...think what linux means and apply the same logic to streetdeck, I haven't manged think of a good one yet though.

    Is there still interest here, or has everyone decided to wait for everyone else?

    I would be very interested in this. I would like to help if I could (not sure how much time I could devote, but anything is better than nothing...)
