How many times have we seen the thin client come and go? I do remember that back in the 1980's this architecture was common. Granted, a dumb terminal was less useful than a browser-based thin-client, but in relative terms, not much. Not to mention that a new OS that is incompatible with pretty much anything other than one companies products will severely limit the market. Tablets have established themselves well with a new and incompatible OS because they do something very different. They hit a new application need. A desktop or laptop lay right on top of the standard application need that can be met better, faster and cheaper.

Well, that part of 8 seconds to boot sounds good! I would like to check that. That has always being something I consider annoying... why a computer has to take too long for booting up. 8 seconds sounds like a good number. Of course, I suppose that's if you have a brand new computer. because later on, if you start installing applications that will auto run at start-up, then the boot time will again hog. wouldn't it?
