"Today, DaimlerChrysler unveiled its newest concept car at the North American International Auto Show: the Dodge Super8 Hemi "all-American sedan" -- with Linux and Java inside."

"Freeman Thomas, the DaimlerChrysler VP who oversaw the Super8 Hemi's design, says the new car "embodies the culture and essence of American optimism. The . . . bold, in-your-face design shows our ability to embrace our love for the sedan and meld it with invigorating execution and technological advancement. With its distinctive tall stance, Hemi powertrain, and telematics applications throughout, the Super8 symbolizes everything we loved about sedans then, plus everything we need now."

"Everything we need now" apparently includes Linux and Java -- because they're both embedded in the sexy new concept car's "Infotronic" system!"
