CarPC.Net (Under-development, Name unofficial)
(This is my first post, Hello everyone. :) )
I have recently decided to install a computer into my daily driver. (1991 Chevrolet Blazer) It's not flashy, fast, or powerful in any way.
I simply want a media center integrated into my dash.
To make my dreams come true, I put together a computer with some fairly low-specs. A 600mhz Celeron, with 128 Mb SDRAM and a 15Gb HDD.
I looked into front-ends for this setup, because I'm not investing in a touch-screen just yet, as I would be leaving that till after I found a software package to run. Then again, this post wouldn't be here unless I hadn't found one.
You see, I tried a lot of different FE's, and of the ones that worked at all, they really didn't offer what I wanted, or were too bloated for my tastes.
Enter CarPC.Net, name unofficial, of course. ;)
It's a custom FE being coded in whole by myself, using the .NET framework (VB.NET for those who care) There are those who think the .NET framework is too slow for older computers, but I must say, they're very wrong.
But I'm sure you all don't really care about that, you just want some screenshots, right? :lol:
Please keep in mind, however, that a lot of these graphics weren't made by me, and the ones that were, aren't very good. I'm open for custom graphics submissions, if anyone feels willing. ;) Skinning is very simple in it's implementaion.
Other menus are incomplete.
Updates to come!
Comments are extremely appreciated.
