    Smile Linux Asus EEE Pc booting in 5 seconds..

    There is an interesting article here about two linux developers building a pc that boots in 5 seconds.

    At the Linux Plumbers Conference Thursday, Arjan van de Ven, Linux developer at Intel and author of PowerTOP, and Auke Kok, another Linux developer at Intel's Open Source Technology Center, demonstrated a Linux system booting in five seconds. The hardware was an Asus EEE PC, which has solid-state storage, and the two developers beat the five second mark with two software loads: one modified Fedora and one modified Moblin. They had to hold up the EEE PC for the audience, since the time required to finish booting was less than the time needed for the projector to sync.
    It could make a difference to all those myth boxes out there.

    Now that gives me something to look forward to.

    I'll be *really* impressed if they can manage to do this with a Windows OS.

    I instantly thought about this while reading the article. But i'm sure that whom ever achieve's this would have to do a whole lot of mucking around to get it to boot quickly.

    And i am also wondering just how reliable the OS is after long periods of time.
