    Multimedia PC with instant start-up launches

    [..]

    Instead of having to wait for Windows to boot, the technology allows
    all a PC's entertainment functions - TV, DVD, CD, MP3, radio - to be
    run on a pared-down version of the open-source Linux operating system,
    called LinDVD.

    Rather than sitting on a hard drive, LinDVD is small enough to be held
    in a read-only memory chip and boots in 10 seconds flat.
