"On the other hand, "while there's a little tongue-in-cheek, I
suspect, this is an interesting development," Slashdot blogger yagu
told LinuxInsider. "I'd file it under the 'more things using Linux

indicative of how versatile Linux is that BIOS vendors and others
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.
"Of course, then we have to answer that not-so-simple question --
but it's a start.""
