    LOL I was gonna say a gtk-based clone of Media Car that runs on linux But in a good mood today so gave a helpful answer! He's not the first person not to know.. I have had the odd confused look when I say the car PC replaces my head-unit! It's like when you're sorting out a network issue and explain to the boss it's a TCP problem... And he says 'what's disinfectant got to do with anything'

    some people referr to them as 'decks' or just simply the radio or cd player....

    it's not uncommon for someone not to know the lingo....

    just the same as someone not knowing what a carpc is....
