Splashtop Instant On on Eee PC

This is the perfect example on how there's still much that can (and should) be done in the software department to truly make the most out of current hardware: an Eee PC (not a very powerful machine) instantly booting Splashtop.

Splashtop is a "minimal" desktop OS version, allowing you to access the internet as well as do some other simple tasks. It comes as standard on some high end Asus Motherboards, but the video shows that it could easily be used from an external USB flashg drive.

In a time where web apps become widely used, a device that can instantly boot to a web browser seem to be quite handy, don't you think?

So, what's the excuse to waste a couple of minutes waiting for a regular OS to boot up, in order for you to check and reply to your email, or read some news feeds?
