    A front-end gives you a solid platform without a suprise.
    Second point, what do you want to do with your computer that you can't do with a front-end as you are driving.
    Aside from the whole "replying to an ancient thread" issue, you do realize you can turn all of those popup notifications off, right? And that you can have whatever program(s) you want start automagically, right?

    One reason to skip the front end is that it lets you use apps that aren't skinned for carpc use...

    All I have to say about the frontend thing is Roadrunner, Girder and an old Kenwood remote.
