What happened to the posts on this tread? lol.
At the moment I do have touchscreen headrests connected to two independent pcs, but I'm looking at running both on one PC with VMWare or VB etc.Quote:
Here's how OM would work better for you:
the Zotac 9300 has the Nvidia geforce 9300 GPU on it (Have the exact same board with C2D E7200, currently peaks at 1% using OM). OM renders using full opengl hardware acceleration. CF doesn't even know the GPU exists. So you have a more than adequate board, but are handcuffing it by forcing it to use your CPU for everything. In the future you may consider adding multiple zones to your ride (to appease your gadget freakyness) for passengers. OM will allow you to use the Zotac to power every zone with GPU acceleration leaving the CPU to just do the calculations for each zone. With CF, your CPU will be working 3 times as hard, and performance is going to suffer, and may require you to install ANOTHER computer to support the zones.
OM currently supports multi-zone, Speech, embedded navigation, music, video, pandora streaming, cameras, contacts, wifi, radio, weather, etc... etc...
Bluetooth sync is written and will be implemented in a future release.
and its free and open source to the community.
The thing is, those boxes aren't high powered or have a decent graphics card... Would that mean OM wouldn't be able to be used on them? If so, this is a major issue as the majority of users on this forum want cheap, low powered carpcs rather than anything flashy, expensive and power hungry (as the Zotac is compared to certain via/atom alternatives).
It was moved to this thread:
I'll reply there.
did support ipods/usb devices and the gtk apps were provided as convenience apps for setup/configuration purposes. It had a terminal for development/testing, not for use while driving ;). However, because nGhost used a mobile window manager and unique task switcher, using such apps was arguably safer than it would be in windows. It was the fastest OS+FE combination out there and had by far the best multitasking. Worked a lot better in my car than any headunit I've owned.
sync wirelessly with your iphone in linux which you still can't do in windows/macOSx. I don't know where support is today, but I doubt it's very far behind what's available on other platforms.
Apple disgusts me and I no longer have any Apple products save my original ipod 1G.
