Linux-Based Instant-On Trend Spreads Out

,----[ Quote ]
| SplashTop is an embedded Linux operating system that is able to execute
| instant-on by being very lightweight. The SplashTop marketing mantra is "zero
| to Internet in seconds," and the operating system comfortably coexists with
| both Windows and other Linux distros on many new portable computers.
|
| In the Lenovo netbook, model S10e, the SplashTop functionality will be
| branded as "Quick Start." I'm not going to be surprised to see Instant-On
| arrive on nearly all Windows- and Linux-based portable computers, and not
| just netbooks. This piece in The New York Times agrees that Instant-On will
| end up fundamentally changing how people think about using their portable
| computers.

The Lenovo S10 Netbook is here, count me in

,----[ Quote ]
| The S10 is here, I ordered one yesterday and I'm psyched. The IdeaPad S10 is
| Lenovo's just-released entry in the Netbook market. "Netbook" is a new term
| that's applied to cheap small laptops that run either Windows XP Home Edition
| or Linux. No Vista or OS X here (neither is cheap).
