Linux I'm uncertain what Linux distro they were using before but today's release of version is free to use on Intel Atom based systems. It would be nice if they distributed an image that doesn't require Windows to install but their target market appears to be Windows devices that include Slashtop OS as an alternate boot option in order to get online faster.

You also have to remember that most BIOS's are written mainly with Windows in mind. So while suspend / hibernate work on Windows, other OS's aren't that lucky. We can all thank Bill Gates for that. He didn't want other OS's to be able to take advantage of all the innovations made in the BIOS that support Windows.
