Firefox and Skype on the Motherboard

2007/10/11 · 3 comments

The Asus P5E3 Deluxe/WiFi-AP@n motherboard has a special boot sequence (ExpressGate,SplashTop) which loads an embedded Linux Operating system with Firefox and Skype pre-configured. The system will be up and running in quick 5 seconds. Quite handy when you quickly want to browse the Internet or grant a guest access for someone to your PC.

Hopefully, this technology would become cheaper soon. I would definitely want this feature on my next Laptop.

Well well, I’m sure this will be really good but the only negative is that we can’t install plug-ins in the firefox and nor skype

You are right. I hope they provide some flash rewritable memory for the preferences and customization in the future versions.
