    Porsche DIY hacks

    I would expect that the car is running some version of Unix or Linux but Win 98ME? I wonder how much money Porsche pays Microsoft for the software. For a 150k car I bet that Microsoft can ask for 2-3k at least.

    Don't google what most ATMs and cash registers run.

    True but nobody asked me for 150k for the privilege of using an ATM...they have to keep the costs down...

    Wow! Old operating systems never die, it would seem. But Windows ME?

    Interesting.  Especially when he repeated the 4wd to rwd hack. I keep meaning to try that on my Turbo. One click up with the old handbrake. Thanks for sharing. 

    Btw when not installed in a PC Microsoft sells the operating system for a couple of dollars. Very cheap.

    Was that not a fake? Seem to remember seeing it a while back.

    You know that this was a joke, right?

    Not sure but I think Porsche's PCM runs on QNX (so does my R8's Virtual Cockpit if I'm not mistaken).

    Btw: ATMs usually use Windows "embedded" versions.

    Linux isn't as safe as many want to believe, depends on the distribution, kernel, etc.. Sometimes the latest Windows 10 version can be "safer". 😉

    April 1st would have been a more suitable date to post the video smiley

    Even if in doubt, the sequence where he fills up oil in the front is a give away. Hilarious.

    either way it was a good video Smiley
