    Better OS for carputer.....2000 or XP?

    Perhaps this is somewhat of a subjective question, but I'm hoping there may be some distinct functional differences I'm not aware of........

    That said, here's the question....in the carputer environment what would be a better operating system, Windows 2000 or Windows XP? (looking forward, I'd like to use Frodoplayer)

    Thanx, D

    xp PRO by far.
    I have used both and XP pro is easier to configure down.
    Car: 2000 Audi A4 Avant 1.8t
    Carputer 2.0: removed. Back to stock.

    I'd go with XP Home, not much different then Pro, in fact there are very few pro features that I could see you using in a car enviroment. 2k boots way to slow and it's an older OS.

    if you want speed go for windows 98/me, has not as many things to load as others.

    but everything has its down falls eg.. unstable.

    xp home would be better as there is nothing for you to benfit from pro. just tweak it too the max!

    At the risk of being yelled at, may I suggest GNU/Linux?

    I suggest Windows 2003 It runs so much faster when tweaked! GNU/Linux would be great if there was enough frontend support =\
    CarPC install is starting to come along again...

    Define faster. Do you mean boot time, or app switching, responsiveness?
