Hardware, Embedded Systems We already introduced Dell's new laptop wonder, the Z600, to you earlier this week. What makes this laptop special is that it contains a small ARM motherboard which runs a special version of openSUSE Linux, allowing for instant access to basic functionality like checking email, browsing the web, and playing multimedia files. What's news, at least for OSNews, is that research from Dell has shown that people spent 70% of their time in the Linux environment.

I can completely boot my Amiga, connect to the internet and get my mail while the PC is still on the BIOS splash screen!

I can't believe "instant on" isn't standard on every computer by this time.
