Phoronix: Linpus Linux To Launch QuickOS Next Week
DeviceVM's SplashTop Linux environment (which we were the first to exclusively share) really was revolutionary in pushing the "instant-on Linux" theme as it was able to boot to its desktop in just a few seconds. Since then we have seen the emergence of Phoenix HyperSpace and other products that target netbooks with near instant-on capabilities.

CeBIT has bit, but still no sign of QuickOS?
Are there any other distros that aren't tied to specific hardware that have a boot time that can rival QuickOS or Moblin?
