[News] GNU/Ballnux in Fast Boot

Hash: SHA1

DEMO 09: Boot Faster, Manage the Cloud

,----[ Quote ]
| First up will be Xandros Presto, which brings an "instant on" feature to 
| Windows systems. I've seen many alternative environments on laptops that boot 
| very quickly - in seconds rather than the minutes it often takes Windows to 
| boot - but typically these are systems that are tied to specific hardware 
| and/or have to be installed by the system maker. Presto is different because 
| it's a $19.95 application that works on any Windows laptop.

| 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.
