Netbooks popularized by Asus with the Eee at $399 or less will become the formfactor for more access to the Cloud. And its now taking a new twist – Instant on PCs. These are Netbooks that can boot in 10 seconds or less. The very interesting fact is that Linux  with preprogrammed, small taskbars is being used in the boot process to intercede in the long Windows XP and even longer Vista boot ups.The Linux-based taskbars provide image gallery, Web connect, email, notepad and other quick services.

This is ground breaking – Slowly but surely Linux which clearly outperforms Windows will replace XP and Vista for more tasks until it finally becomes the base OS on more devices. Maybe China will get Linux as intended in the firstplace by the central government.
