    As winEmbedded (WE) moved from CE to NT recently, I wonder how easy it would be to hack it? I know nothing about WE, but if I somehow get a FIAT, I might try to deploy a WPF app to it. Imagine Skyrim running in a car. Distracted driving at 4 FPS?

    Best be careful with that effort. You could be held liable if someone had an accident because they were distracted due to whatever you plan on doing.

    On another note, I had mentioned this about a year ago. This is MSFT's hidden jem. One common interface to run:

    PC
    Tablet
    XBox / TV
    Phone
    Car

    I see revolution on the horizon.

    True, I might just do it to post it on YouTube, or even to make an upgraded and open-source version of the default FIAT system using WPF C#.

    FIAT makes some ugly vehicles...

    That said, good luck on your quest to do this!

    From what I found, the UI fiat uses in its cars are a metro app or WPF app. Clearly, it would be easy enough to delete the app file in /WindowsApps or /Program Files, resulting in the FIAT app crashing on startup and dumping me on the start screen.
