| Remember, xPUD is a DIY OS. Therefore, many exciting features like xPUD
| Switch Mode (the ability to toggle into another OS, a la Splashtop) haven't
| been implemented yet. That's where you come in. You can help with the
| development of xPUD. What do you get for your effort? A backstage pass to
| helping with the development of a real contender to the moniker "fastest-boot
| OS" in the West (and the East).


The Linux Instant-On Craze

,----[ Quote ]
| Seems like the developing trend towards Linux-based, Instant-on environments
| is just beginning to blossom.  The folks over at Netbooknews.de are featuring
| a brief video showing the speed of the new Linpus Linux quick boot OS.
