Nifty! So Asus is set to have an Instant “On” Linux for a line of their notebooks. (And, yes, it supports instant “Off” as well.)
Going back a few years.. well, a few decades.. the whole instant “On” concept is certainly not new. I am trying desperately to remember the name of an 8-bit system that would “instantly” turn on or off and always have your work sitting there waiting for you where you left off.
But we’ve all become so accustomed to having to wait on computers to boot software which we then use to run other software which we have to wait on to do anything. Sigh. It is a little sad.
Anyway, I am hoping this marks a wider trend of focusing more on having computers that act like typical electronic devices and less like, well, computers.
