    Talking What software do you use for your Carcomputer?

    Hey guys, I've been posting enough on the boards and as you know from the hardware posting I did...I got my Minibook PC and ready to start picking a software.

    I found MYHTPC http://www.myhtpc.net which is easy to use but I hate the static image it uses for playing mp3's (I would prefer full screen display of the id tag).

    Is there a better engine for launching apps and a neater mp3 display (current song playing).

    Thanks!

    OK, fine.

    Most people here use those listed in the software forum

    I personally am using MediaCar. I have used MediaEngine in the past, also. There are a few more I would like to try out, but it's too much hassle at the moment to put them on my otherwise stable and "done" system.

    Currently M$ Windows Media Center Edition 2004 but I am considering MediaCar or Media Engine when they add a few more things I would like.

    I use XP and Winamp, seeing as my car computer got to the "installed" point and ran out of money for GPS.

    I don't have my CarPC setup yet, but I am testing software on my home PC and I like MediaCar better than MediaEngine. The only thing that I wish the MediaCar had was to have album art displayed during playback.
