ASUS ships several mother boards that now include “SplashTop“. SplashTop is a proprietary distro of Linux that enables the Motherboard to boot without a hard drive installed operating system.

Basically, within around five seconds of turning the computer on, SpashTop is up and running. This allows you to surf the web, check your email and run a few other Internet facing applications.

From there, if you chose to, you could then boot into Windows that is on your harddrive.

Here is a list of ASUS motherboards that have this enabled.
