    Windows Server 2008

    Has anyone tried running there CarPC on W2K8 yet? I am a MSDN subscriber I am thinking about giving it a whirl with RoadRunner.

    win2k3 has better memory management over xp and probably 2000. Hence why I use it :P

    But win2k8 is based on vista, i don't want to touch that for a while after seeing how vista itself runs...

    Should be pretty nice if you have:

    - driver support for your hardware
    - compatible software
    - Enough horsepower
    - Enough disk space for the larger OS.

    SQL Server on the go that logs all GPS data? Could be cool...

    Galvitron, nice idea about SQL logging GPS data on the go, that got me thinking and it can be done in XP using SQL Server Express which is the free version of SQL Server 2005 I am sure express has enough capabilities to handle straight out logging and queries...

    SQL Server Compact Edition would probably be a better fit for a Car PC.
