Ok, I have an interesting project for which I am beginning the research.

I intend to build a nano-itx PC to use as a media center PC in a car.  I 
have been looking at Windows Media player because it has a lot of stuff 
integrated and makes life easier when using a touch panel and servo 
controllers.  Ease comes with a price though and the size of the OS is a 
problem considering that I want to use flash ram as the HD.  Sooooooo ..... 
does anyone have recommendations for a distro and program package that would 
best fill my needs?  I want to use a touch panel, bluetooth keyboard, 
802.11G NIC, bluetooth GPS and a servo controller that will need control 
panels coded.  There is my excuse to finally learn PERL.
