what os does the computer and screen run on? windows?

I am sure this has been covered before somewhere. But I would like to know if we are dealing with tesla own proprietary operating system or not. And if not can we load our own or third party apps onto it?

The primary and instrument displays run on Linux. The other internal processors are unknown, but unlikely Windows.

Both displays uses some modified Linux and run on Tegra 3 processor - at least that big one, maybe that small uses Tegra 2, not sure about that.
Motor control unit does not use operating system (AFAIK), it's coded and simulated/verified inhouse by Tesla in standart C (not C++) for microcontrolers. Heard that in one video with Musk, but no chance to find it, that was to long ago :(

The computer, screen and windows all run on electricity :)

Just to confirm, the instrument display runs on a Tegra 2 processor. More undocumented details are on my site at:
