    why move to linux?

    Almost all SLOW PCs run windows XP...

    The EEEPCs, which are for me the PCs I am looking to use while programming, work just fine for this purpose...

    Why not develop an iphone APP and a smaller V2? a la V1 that connects directly to it and you can make the changes there? V1 shouldn't have been dropped... Just upgraded... maybe a direct cable connecting to the iphone would be awesome at least for scanning and/or as a BBF BBL.

    I guess that instead of moving to another platform, you guys should develop ford/chrysler scanning capabilities... I would certainly pay extra right now for it.

    because paying 200$ for OS on a $200 piece of hardware is silly. it made more sense when computers were 3000$, but not in the era of netbooks.

    Oh please Marcin....... XP is not that expensive anyhow... Do you need a key??? I have a technet sub.

    That is like saying... Paying $12-14k for the full efilive software on a $200 piece of hardware is super silly.....

    Hmmm , because I hate feeding a huge Corporate giant more and more money , while they force upgrades to inferior software .
    Yeah , iPhones are dropping to below $100 bucks , but really would not want to tune through my phone (667MHz processor) .
    How about a V3 with embedded Linux that could work as a phone , netbook , GPS , TV and tuning/scanner . I'd buy one !

    Why do you need to subscribe and pay to a site to get illegal numbers for a crappy software , when you can run Linux for free , no license and not be illegal ?
    I have a gut feeling that tuning automobiles is going to get tougher and tougher and maybe to the point of not doable at all . $.2

    I didn't know Technet was illegal... I better call microsoft as they are the ones that charge me for my technet subscription!

    The only reason would be to make efilive on a dedicated device with more common and simple hardware. Just like Snap On does with the modis(although they use XP, which makes it more expensive). Not having to pay a M$ license will mean the product will be more affordable... Same thing as GM does with their TIVO boxes to dealers... They all run linux...

    Other than that... If the scope is to keep this a different hardware like V2 for a PC based connection, I see no reason to run Linux.
