| Though there are several "instant on" solutions out there, like Lenovo's
| Splash-top on the Lenovo IdeaPad S10 (pictured), Asus' ExpressGate and
| Xandros' Presto, you cannot actually boot into Windows immediately. Instead,
| what you are booting into is an alternative stripped-down Linux environment.
| Though there are many fctors involved, one of the reason Windows is unable to
| achieve instant boot times is because it has many background processes which
| require the system to run through many more lines of binary code compared
| with a Linux operating system.
