Bundle Forces for Car software development
It might be the start of the flame of all flames but still...
I was wondering, I've been surfing around here for a quite a while having a lot of attention for the software part.
there I see several great projects which are all, basically, doing the same thing but all seperately with minor differences
We have as all time favorite ( or so i notice looking at the comments) MediaCar of a fellow belgian guy ;-)
Frodoplayer , Phonecontrol.net and many great others.
These are all individuals writing this stuff in their own free type, solving problems etc.
I was thinking, wouldn't it be more "productive" that these people would just bundle their knowledge and forces to write 1 application together which would include the best featuteres off all software ?
I am sure that you guys have to tackle a lot of problems which one of the others also encounters or already fixed like supporting the broad range of different hardware etc..
I understand all projects are started from a different perspective but if , for example, there was to be an engine in which people could easily plug-in modules and one of these plug-ins would be the interface, the same engine, supporting everything needed, could be used for all with just a different interface and software development would be a lot quicker and even better, more efficient ..;
In the end, a bunch of smart people put together should get even smarter no ?
Anyway, my 03 cents ;-)
