    Thanks, but I would hate to see it at all. The last thing I would want to see would be MS branding on something I have tried to customize for my vehicle. My carputer is ripped out since I am selling the Nissan, but one of the things I want to do is completly elimiate the windows stuff from showing up at all.

    Cool concept, does need a "night" version or something though, as that would be painful.

    C!
    I fertilized this thread didn't I?

    Hey lominono, sorry to rag on your efforts, they look genuine. I also have all the emblems on my truck, along with the emblems from several other vehicles and a bunch of really cool stickers that make it go faster

    Do they look genuine??? To me it is pretty weird...

    it looks like "CarpC Edition" which looks werid... I'd probably change it in favor of say "Windows XP - Automotive Edition" or something like that, but I just rather put my car's brand on it....

    I agree. It looks decent but you should change the P to an uppercase, and clean it up a little, it looks very photoshopped in there as it is. Also, I would go in and remove all the background "fuzz" around the lettering/logo so it looks more sharp, with a clean border between black and white.

    if you do that, then it should look pretty convincing.

    oh yeah, and definitely a darker background ;-)
    But don't take it from me! here's a quote from a real, live newbie:
