    OS of choice?

    I'm curious do most of you develop for linux/bsd based or windows os's? I personally use a lot of software for linux (xmms for music, freediag for obd ii sensing, gpsdrive for handling the gps, and of course airsnort for finding wireless networks and connecting). I was wondering what software of choice do you have here, and how it performs. I've been meaning to check out the dashpc distro made for in a car, but currently I just play on my laptop, haven't gotten a dedicated computer or touchscreen yet... Maybe some other day...
    Just curious

    overall it seems if you want a full blown feature rich system without to much hassle one should go with linux. when i first started to look into carputers i expected linux to be the king but alas it really doesn't seem to be. I'm probably going to go with windows 2003 enterprise server because I'm a member of MSDNAA so i get it for free, and some claim that it starts up a heck of a lot faster than XP. we'll see though.
    don't worry i know i usually don't make much sense

    I use Win2k Professional, because I am using older hardware and I didn't want to wait forever to boot.
