A PC with a ROM chip running linux
"For consumer electronics activities, the InstantOn PC is strictly Linux.
It simply uses Windows for the slower drudge work like word processing"
The question is why they are bothering to use windows at all ...
Microsoft's response I find very funny:
"We find that most people never turn their Media Center PCs off," says
Paul Randle, Windows XP product manager. "I don't even turn mine off when
I go away for the weekend. So boot time is not an issue."
It reminds me of the old tech support question and answer :
Customer: "It breaks when I do this."
Techie: "Don't do that, then."
