Linux  and Free Software :: Asus ships new hi-end mobo with Linux on a chip :D

Asus has decided to equip it's new mobo with Linux on a chip. By pressing a button you will boot into the embedded system, boot time 5 secs, and there you have Firefox 2 and Skype just to mention something.

Putting Linux to a flash chip on the mobo is not a new thing, but to me it's a great move from a company. And it's on a separate chip from the bios, not like the ones people themselves do, replacing the bios with linux.
