Hey guys, I would be the new member. Little background about me, I'm 25, currently own a Dodge Avenger Stage 5 Turbo, w/ all the bells and whistles. I run/own http://www.ASEClub.net which is a club based on the Avenger/Sebring models.
As far as this project. I have been writing code in various languages (C++, VB, Perl, PHP, ASM, Python, Rexx, and Pascal/Delphi) for about 9 years, 6 of which I have done so professionally.
As Mike has said, we'd like to build a framework for a very customizable, expandable, and configurable system. You don't need to say "We want an MP3/Video player", because that's the obvious. I guess we're looking for the extremes of what you'd want it to do.
Currently, I have a functioning Qt/KDE designed solution that is for the most part functioning. I have some features that some of you(from what I have seen) would be interested in. Auto-Dim features, Cam support, the ability to upload your mp3/movies from your home pc(using a seperate application), being able to use a PDA to control specific functions, etc.
Hope to get some good ideas from you guys, and looking forward to starting this project.
