The Linux Foundation’s Jim Zemlin provides an interesting twist on the most cutting-edge Windows machines from Dell, Hewlett-Packard, and others: they’re all running Linux.
No, he’s not talking about dual-boot systems. (OK, kind of.) Instead he’s talking about “fast boot,” which an increasing number of computer manufacturers are delivering via Linux-based solutions from DeviceVM and others. Resource hound that it is, Microsoft apparently needs some help from Linux getting started from the once “cancerous” Linux.
