I'm booting 20-30 seconds on a ordenary P4, 1gb ram..
as it's a flash disk this will be faster, perhaps not 8-10 but 15, like the good old days with P3 and BeOS

>That said, it's not clear what the 'first user >interaction' is: is-it a login manager or a desktop >(and if so which desktop)?
Nop that would be to easy ;)

I will probably by one when they are out if it's under 300. ;)
