    Be careful what you ask for. The next version of Windows itself might be like that...
    Progress: 80% - Permanent install left.
    Motion LS800 Tablet PC and dock.
    Vista, Bu-535 GPS, RoadRunner, MPT2006.

    NOOOOO!

    A CarPC and HTPC frontend need the bling-bling. I don't want anything spinning and blinking on my work desktop! LOL

    you'll need quite a powerfull machine or at least high-cost video card to get you through some fast flash graphics in order to make something "bling-bling" (as you so put it) useful at all.. Flash makes no use of OpenGL/Direct3D meaning that it's not any basic 3D card that will get you going nicely -- my best guess is that it's the Card's Bus Clock that will matter..

    Isn't that what that UbiquityV is all about ?? MobileImpact also stroke me as handling graphics with D3D.... but it is not a bad idea at all... althogh I personally preffer OpenGL (just choice).. but still woudn't help with the flash slowness.. Macromedia is who needs to get into this.. I have actually seen software for flash playback using hardware acceleration (for $$$)..

    your flash demo looks very promising.
    52-hit-combo?! Is that really necessary?

    well the prob is like Guino says.... it's very hard to make a complete flash skin
    everytime u add a thing u have to check the cpu usage..
    it takes very little animations to make the cpu usage going sky high

    so far this skin manages to run fairly ok on my pc system
    my carpc specs:
    celeron 2.6ghz
    512mb ddr 400mhz
    GF fx5600 128mb ddr

    i made alot more to the skin than the preview here on mp3car
    and with 3-4 animated things at once cpu usage spikes at about 70-80%

    its fine outside RR when previewing and testing the skin ... but once in RR the cpu spikes starts

    it's very hard indeed making a complete RR flash skin.... just ask CdRskuLL he's got some experience about it too

    im gonna finish the rest of the bfm skin tonight CET

    after that i'll try and look into the flash skin again and try to see what i can optimize
    Food goes in here..... that's right ... mmmmm
