    Re: Your opinion?

    Glad to hear CUE is Linux based. I've used linux for over a decade now and prior to that used solaris. I am a unix guy since college. The upside is that CUE should be less crash prone. I checked a few days ago and one of my systems has been up continuously for over 2 years. Now that is stability. The only crashes I get are from hard drive failures. Hopefully CUE will be as reliable. Further they could be using X for the display engine and that means tools could easily be made available to the customer for serious customization of the display. I look forward to it when I trade my CTSV.

    It looks like what should of been in a DTS. But I'm a little worried about the first iteration of this system. I hope gm's maintenance section for this system is better than the ones for other systems like the nav system in other Cadillacs.

    I think GM will have much more control over CUE than the NAV systems. The NAV's are all 3rd party closed source systems. CUE if really linux gives them all the source code down to the OS and their engineers can adjust it as needed. I actually wish the car companies would bring more stuff back in house instead of just mixing and matching external systems.

    Yeah, its pretty ridiculous that GM has a hodge podge of different NAV units. Each vastly different...

    I hope they're smart and use something like google maps instead of the way outdated nav systems that require discs for updates.

    I wouldn't be surprised if you had a choice, like you do on many mobile devices...

    As long as the map data is in the car. If you are suggesting google maps "in the cloud" no thanks.

    Re: Your opinion?

    Hopefully they will not be running CUE in a VM. What were you running that locked it up? The only thing I run into occasionally is a browser crash. X and Ubuntu 8/9/10 have all been pretty stable for me on my laptop. Not on 11 yet and my production boxen are on RH. I'm not running anything too crazy, but I do have some fair size images at times (12-16G).

    Vmware is kewl but introduces one more layer of complexity. KISS!
