    so then I assume I could use ubuntu sources and build my own kernel and probably speed up the boot time?

    yes you could. or you could even get the vanilla kernel sources from kernel.org and built a much newer and faster kernel .

    this may help

    I'll give that a shot then. I have Ubuntu 7.04 right now on this machine (as well as Vista and XP Pro). My Carpc is a P4 3.06Ghz w/256mb ram (used to have 1gb, but due to boot time issues I use hibernation with a small amount of ram) and 5400rpm 2.5" ide drive.

    If I build a specific kernel for my setup and it does indeed improve boot-times then I think I'd switch to LinuxICE as long as the GPS was up to "par" with what's available now (or just run it through WINE).

    nice job on what's done so far though

    XM Support?

    This looks pretty nice, are there any plans for XM support?

    Also, does anyone know if this will work with the Via NX nano motherboards?

    Sorry mate, there are currently no plans for XM integration. There doesn't seem to be any support for Linux from the XM folks.

    It should work out of the box with your NX nano board. If you are using wifi, make sure that your card is supported under Linux. We created 3 epia centric kernels that resume in about 11s for CIII, C3-2, and C7 cpus. I'd be interested to see how well it runs on a nano board or even a pico board.

    Here is a quick demo of the upcoming LinuxICE Beta1. It features a new panel app written specifically for LinuxICE. The new panel, icepanel, is a server application that allows multiple clients to connect to it and each other and in turn allows the panel to control the functions in the client apps.

    This is important because it allow us to integrate applications with the desktop like never before. Regardless of what window is open (navigation, filebrowsing, obd-II), the functions from the other apps are still present on the panel which never goes away. No more confining another app inside a frontend.

    The three buttons used in the demo are the "show desktop", "previous window" and "next window".

    Beta1 Now available

    Beta1 is now available. See the first post and http://linuxice.com for details.

    We are working and getting really close to having a very nicely integrated system. Integrated in such a way that you won't need a frontend to "mask" the operating system but rather have the frontend become just another component within the OS.
