2-second Boot Time? Now, that is what I call an Instant-on OS! [Netbooks]

Moblin is an open source project that is build upon the Linux platform, which is geared towards netbooks, MIDs and UMPCs. At the Linux Collaboration Summit, which was held in San Fransisco, Intel discussed its plans about the upcoming major version of the Mobilin platform. Tests of the latest Moblin 2 alpha release show that the major components (including graphics system) can start up in mere seconds. Intel is stubborn that with the new Moblin platform, 2 second boot time is infact possible.

ASUS coming up with a Google Android netbook?

ASUS has already allocated a team of engineers to work upon an Android-based netbook and they will able to fully develop the Android-based netbook by the end of this year. It will be interesting to see the place for such a netbook, where 90% of the netbook market is using the old and trusty Windows XP as their OS. One reason that folks at ASUS may be looking upto the Android platform is the fact that it is free. Note, that even though Microsoft continues to offer the netbook manufactures Windows XP, but we cannot deny the fact it is not FREE like Android.
