Why do I feel like this is a bad idea? The Fiat Group's cars will all run Microsoft's Windows Automotive software, controlling the onboard info and communications systems. A video display won't be standard, but a USB port will be provided to allow users to attach personal audio components, although it's possible that, consistent with what we all know about monopolies, only players produced by Microsoft may work. The partnership will bear its first fruit next year when the software is installed in all Fiats, Lancias and Alfa Romeos. "Dude, I think my car is broken…" "Did you try CTL+ALT+DEL?"
