Hash: SHA1

Splashtop Linux conquers Asus laptops

,----[ Quote ]
| It's a small step for an operating system, perhaps, but it could be another 
| giant leap for Linux. DeviceVM has announced that its Splashtop 'instant-on' 
| Linux is to appear on Asus laptops from this summer.  
| The news follows the DeviceVM's recent coup of persuading the influential 
| Taiwanese PC company to embed Splashtop - which Asus calls 'Express Gate' - 
| on all its motherboards, out of the blue putting a type of Linux in millions 
| of mainstream computers for the first time.   


Asus to launch laptops with instant-on feature

,----[ Quote ]
| Five new laptop models from Asus will incorporate DeviceVM's Splashtop 
| instant-on software, the computer maker said Thursday at the Computex show in 
| Taipei, Taiwan.  


There's another huge win for Linux coming this August. As Ozzie said yesterday
(joining Ballmer), this is Microsoft's biggest threat.

| Asus revealed plans to launch a whole family of Eee products including a
| small form-factor desktop machine dubbed the E-DT.


Feeling the heat at Microsoft

| A couple of years ago you reiterated that IBM was Microsoft's biggest
| competitor and you said not just on the business side, but overall. If I ask
| you who is Microsoft's biggest competitor now, who would it be?
| Ballmer: Open...Linux. I don't want to say open source. Linux, certainly have
| to go with that.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.6 (GNU/Linux)
