In the future, your PC will boot in 5 seconds.
Quick-boot Linux environment makes a splash: "DeviceVM's quick-booting Splashtop Linux implementation is being pre-installed on four new Asus motherboards. Asus plans to ship over a million per month, making this one of the largest Linux deployments ever.
Branded 'Express Gate' by Asus, Splashtop boots up a prompt within five seconds, letting users either continue booting Windows or instead load a stripped-down Linux environment featuring the Firefox web browser, Adobe Flash, Skype, and a photo viewer."
