    That would be nice. At the moment I'm learning Linux Slackware 9.0 from the inside out so I can start writing software for it (still a n00b at that tough). When I've got it onder control, I want to try to customize the DashPC screen to my own needs.

    the main reason for me not to take linux was the whole navigation issue. there is no good navigation software (good means, it can find the quickest way, and maybe it could even talk and it should use a gps.. i konow there is so kind of mapping software, taht actually shows you your position on any scanned map.. but that's not wat i want..

    forget ME on Linux, it's been written in Visual Basic, which is probably one of the most non-Linuxish programming languages ;-)

    PS: does anyone know if Map&guide runs on wine?

    PPS: my winxp takes 30 seconds to boot (hybernation) without any modifications, my bios even does the memory check and all that kinds of stuff, after 30 seonds i hear music... what else do you want? plus it runs perfectly stable...


    cheers

    I like Windows XP a lot, but it's a shame it takes zo much disk space. Therefore I'm thinking about Linux. Mayby I will combine DashPC and Media Engine....

    Off Topic:
    How is it going with your ON1 IR Remote? Next month I'm buying my IR reciever.
    On Topic - Not really looked in to it.. not a big Linux fan.

    Off Topic - Will drop you a PM but about half way... The basics are working.
