    Pros and cons linux vs winders, hehe

    Hello people, I have been looking at this site for a few years but have never joined. Now is the time for me to start my project but i cannot seem to gather enough info about it to make a decision.

    Basically i have no problem with either os except im more experienced to windows, but more partial to linux/bsd systems.

    Could someone describe the pros and cons on both type os's?

    I would like to have gps/camera/music&video player/wifi and of course reliability from lots of system power off's and on's as well as which disto (if linux) and frontend is preferred.

    I greatly appreciate your input on any of these.

    Most of the software here is written for windows. Though there are many options for linux as well.

    Windoze is preferred for one major reason: There is far more software available for use in the car than there is for Linux.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.
