The desktop or "windows" on a good Linux distribution (and there are many to choose from) makes it not much different than the Micro-sloth stuff. Even bitty computers like Raspberry Pi's can run versions of Linux with a desktop interface and they're not at all hard to set up.I've always given thought to switching to Linux, since I was a teenager actually, but it comes off as rather intimidating.
Getting back on topic, I can see hackers doing to vehicles to recover "features" the same way they did deletes on diesel pickups to eliminate things they didn't like.
We just bought a 2022 Honda Passport (My wife loved it, and I'm O.K. with it) it's a top-of-the-line model as I figure I'm only good for this and maybe another car at my age, so why not splurge.
Truthfully I have yet to use the remote start, the satellite radio and probably a handful of other features I don't know about nor care about. But if they start taking away things that came with the vehicle I may have to investigate software like the Forscan used on my F-450.
