Y'all are missing an important point. Most automotive headunits are designed to work best with Apple devices (eg. my Pioneer Z140BH - full voice recognition, album art, etc. only for iPod/iPhone sources). Out of no choice, I shelled out $189 back in 2009 for a 160GB iPod classic to essentially use it as a USB HDD in the car.

20Mbps is stupid excessive even for a 1920x1080 1.78 aspect ratio MKV video. That's approaching commercial BluRay datarates (~28Mbps on a lot of releases). 10Mbps for video (less if the aspect ratio is 2.4) + 0.625-1.5Mbps for audio (5.1 AC3 / DTS) is plenty.

Not trying to argue the pros/cons of each OS. Just so happens that a lot of folks need Windows to run particular apps. No, please don't trot out the tired out "But GIMP instead of Photoshop, etc." arguments. Just assume a "I want to use app X, and it only runs / runs best on Windows" scenario. While I like Linux and OSX, Windows does have it's place.

I assume anything at work is recorded/stored and can be retrieved on request. This is problematic if you have asshole coworkers and/or bosses. Better not to leave any trace. Anything I access at work is on a personal laptop tethered to my cell, or failing which, an SSH tunnel back home.

Thanks Intel for shafting your early adopters and denying that there is a problem with the IHS assembly process for IvyBridge and Haswell. The TIM that they used is actually quite good, it's just the spacing inconsistency between the die and IHS during manufacturing that is the issue.
