"Phoenix Technologies' HyperSpace is also built on Linux and various other FOSS applications plus some proprietary code, but it is significantly different from Splashtop. It is installed to your hard drive, and it operates in two modes: hypervisor or standalone. Hypervisor mode, called "HyperSpace Hybrid", lets you run it side-by-side with Windows, and switch back and forth without rebooting. Hybrid mode requires an IntelVT CPU. "Dual Mode" is for systems without CPU support for virtualization, so to switch between HyperSpace and Windows you need to reboot.

"Unlike Splashtop, you can purchase HyperSpace separately and install it on your PC. Hardware support is still limited, so check the specs first. HyperSpace comes with a Web browser, full multimedia support, wireless Ethernet and 3G support."
