    Are we going to be hooked ino their hardware? I hope they make it software only, even if it loads its own flavor of OS (like some light linux dist or somerhtign)... even if they use a hardware dongle to prevent piracy, i'd be all for it...

    although I think they will probably only win from current software offering if they make kickass navigation, similar to what is available in current HU systems.

    I think microsoft is marketing windows automotive very differently from how XP or a desktop OS is marketed. i.e. they just provide the base services. A lot is left up to end retailer to taylor the OS to the specific device they are offering providing thier own graphics and programs on top of the OS and I highly doubt we will see any stand alone version of the OS for an x86 platform any time soon.
