are choosing Linux for these kinds of technology tweaks."
"One result could be to give Linux more exposure in a mainstream
setting, yagu added. "Maybe we need to find a way to talk about
this more publicly ... get people asking, 'why, if the instant boot
is a satisfactory experience for most computer tasks, wouldn't
Linux be satisfactory in a more full environment?'" he suggested.
