      A lot of car entertainment systems do run on Windows. Don’t see what the problem is – whatever OS is used tends to be hidden well beneath the customised UI that’s actually put on there.

          I have experienced the Creators Update firsthand as part of the Insider Preview, and I can truly say that Windows 10 is good, right up there with Windows 7. And I’m more of a Linux Mint person.
