    Welcome to mp3car!

    That looks like a standard PC. I would assume like any other PC, you can install Windows or Linux on it, and then at that point you have a choice of frontends, gps apps, and other support software to choose from

    kinda dated hardware, but meh, it'll do.

    LinuxICE should run well on that hardware.
