Do you think they should have used embedded Linux?

I've always thought that a handle on the inside was quite easy to "administer". Didn't need a manual. :D (And internal locking doesn't seem to protect against someone outside with a sledgehammer.)

For the next models, I suppose they will relocate the tool kit to beneath one of the seats and will include a sledgehammer.

Also, I'd hate the job of defragging and reinstalling windows.

Ages ago a mate of mine had the most embarrassing situation during his wedding when his Nissan blew a fuse or something and we couldn't open the doors after the ceremony (the door is electronic, no keys). Needless to say we had a good laugh. But the bride couldn't see the humour.
