Creating a CarPC OS from scratch?
Hi, guys. i just started a thread about creating a new carpc interface and i was thinking about the limitations to present carpc's and i realized one of the big issues is the underlying OS which is mostly XP or sometimes Vista. The OS tends to be overkill since there are so many things running in it that are not being used. there are also compatibility issues and size problems.
i was wondering has anyone tried writing an OS dedicated just to car computing since that would cut out a lot of unneeded functions and make the system more efficient and also boot up in an instant. i think there are linux distros out there that can be whipped up into a superior carpc OS. i mean i could be wrong but what do you guys think?
