| boot Linux 2.6 in under two seconds.  



ASUS add WiFi-N, quick-boot Linux to P5E3 motherboard

,----[ Quote ]
| hat last part is perhaps the most interesting; ASUS are calling it Express 
| Gate, but it’s basically a fast-boot alternative that, in just five seconds, 
| bypasses Windows and gives you a web-browser running in a custom Linux OS.   


Mach Boot: The live CD that supposedly boots in 10 seconds

,----[ Quote ]
| Mach Boot won't replace Knoppix, and it won't replace Puppy, DSL or NimbleX 
| either. But it's a tool all its own, one that could be very useful with a 
| little more development time.  


Tiny WiFi-enabled Linux box boots in 1.1 seconds

,----[ Quote ]
| Technologic continues to reduce the boot time, price, and size of
| its embedded boards and systems targeting remote sensing and other
| power-critical applications. Its new $100 ARM9-based TS-7400 board can
| boot Linux in 1.1 seconds, and is available as part of a tiny
| WiFi-enabled system.


Flexible ARM9 SBC boots Linux in 1.69 seconds

,----[ Quote ]
| Technologic Systems is offering a freely downloadable, Debian-based Linux
| OS image said to boot from an SD card in less than two seconds, on the
| company's ARM9-based SBC (single-board computer).


Dell Creating Consumer PCs Complete with Virtualization

,----[ Quote ]
| And in a similar fashion to what Parallels and VMware Fusion did for the 
| Intel-based Mac community, this could give the Linux operating system a boost 
| from consumers who want to use the open source software but don't want to 
| lose out on what Microsoft's Windows platforms offer.   


Dell to stuff hypervisors in flash memory

,----[ Quote ]
| Dell CTO Kevin Kettler today confirmed these plans during a speech here at 
| LinuxWorld, saying the company expects to see major performance and 
| power-saving improvements by dumping a hypervisor in flash. Customers will 
| basically "boot to a virtual machine-ready" state, he said.   


SplashTop Source Code Released

,----[ Quote ]
| These patches are for Bootsplash, 
| DVM, getting the CMOS time, adjusting the max loop, the sk98lin networking 
| driver, and SquashFS. Presently, the Linux kernel that SplashTop uses is 
| Linux    


Linux Boot Time Greatly Reduced, x86 Version of TP InstantBoot Announced

,----[ Quote ]
| The boot loader extension transfers and expands the image to the memory at 
| startup and returns the state of the InstantBoot driver to what it was just 
| before power was shut off. The solution reduces startup time through a 
| combination of these processes.   


Microsoft nonchalant about Phoenix assault on Windows

,----[ Quote ]
| BIOS maker Phoenix Technologies Ltd.'s plans to market a new application 
| platform the company claims will solve a number of problems endemic to 
| Microsoft's Windows platform might be taken as a provocative gesture at their 
| longtime partner. But Redmond's immediate reaction was nonchalant.   
| On Monday, the Milpitas, Calif. software maker announced Hyperspace, a 
| Linux-based virtualization platform that will let OEMs bundle cut-down 
| versions of popular open-source software that end users will be able to 
| access instantly, even without booting Windows.    


Phoenix HyperSpace: Quick-Boot Your Laptop

,----[ Quote ]
| Phoenix Technologies' new HyperSpace is an instant-on environment for 
| laptops, letting users launch a browser or other apps with booting into the 
| OS.  
| Today, Phoenix Technologies introduced a firmware product called HyperSpace, 
| which allows PCs to run a number of applications separate from the operating 
| system. What that means is that if you use a PC equipped with HyperSpace, you 
| will be able to quick-boot your notebook into a secure Linux environment, 
| where you can use Web browsers like FireFox and pre-loaded Web-aware apps 
| like Google Earth, Picasa, and the like.     
| [...]
| Also, since HyperSpace is a Linux-based platform, Windows viruses won't 
| affect it.
