The extent of automotive IT

This content is 17 years old. I don't routinely update old blog posts as they are only intended to represent a view at a particular point in time. Please be warned that the information here may be out of date.

I know that modern cars contain several computers (obviously there is engine management, then there is access control, in-car entertainment, possibly satellite navigation, etc.) but I’ve just returned from the local Saab dealership after having to have the electric windows reprogrammed! Next month the car is going back to have some bits of trim replaced, a new key fob and a software upgrade!

Whatever next, Microsoft Windows Vista Sportswagon Edition? Or perhaps a new version of Ubuntu codenamed Speeding Saab (which turns the Warty Warthog, Hoary Hedgehog, Breezy Badger, Dapper Drake, Edgy Eft and Fiesty Fawn into roadkill)?

(Sorry – I think last weekend’s sunshine has made me delirious.)
