Ford cars in the US use it but they have a logo that tells you its windows, I though the leaf was running something like QNX

"Microsoft announced today that Windows Embedded Automotive technologies are powering the touch-screen Information Hub for the 2011Nissan LEAF electric car. The hub gives LEAF drivers and passengers a navigation system and electricity charging station locator. It also shares power consumption monitoring information with drivers, and enables easy in-car climate monitoring – all on top of a smooth, quiet electric ride."

Now all you Leaf owners will understand why sometimes it gets a little unresponsive and slow. You can just default to "Oh, it's because it's Windows..." (I know I do).
