Here's more info on the "Splashtop" by DeviceVM.




"will let users browse the Internet using Firefox within 20 seconds of 
pushing the power button,"

"DeviceVM positions itself as a virtualization company. This suggests 
that its media- and Internet browsing-oriented environment will be 
capable of running at the same time as Windows or another host OS. Users 
could potentially browse the Internet under Linux, while keeping a 
separate instance of Windows running offline for much-improved security.

The Wired post suggests that the Linux environment will not have access 
to the device's hard drive. Presumably, though, users could insert a usb 
storage key when wishing to transfer files between the two environments."

We'll have to watch and see what they use for BIOS.
