Few questions, none of which have anything to do with ME
What type of system are you using? How fast is the WinXP Embedded boot up? Where do you get WinXP Embedded?
Currently I'm testing with a K6-2 550MHz/128MB. Startup time to desktop including BIOS mem test is less than 40 seconds. As compaired to a full install of XP Pro that takes about a minute. My goal was to put the OS and proggies on a 256MB CF card and the media files on a 80GB 2.5" removable drive but I don't know if WinXP Embedded is going to be worth the effort. Getting the right components in the build isn't easy and it's not that much faster so I think I might ditch the idea. You can get an evaluation version here. It is fun to play around with though.
Also, that LCD is great, I love mine. The price sucks, but oh well the quality is great but its not all that bright. Works for me, but some people complain. I reccomend it based on my use of it, in a semi-shaded area, that will soon have tinted windows.
Actually I think I'm going to go for the Lilliput screen after reading the posts round here.
