Samsung is the latest PC maker to jump on the quick start bandwagon. The company has partnered with Phoenix to load HyperSpace on all of Samsung’s upcoming mobile PCs including netbooks.
HyperSpace is basically a low profile Linux distribution that hangs out on a small hard drive partition, allowing you to choose between HyperSpace or Windows when you boot your computer. HyperSpace has the advantage of booting in a matter of seconds and allowing you quick and easy access to a handful of applications including Firefox, Skype, and multimedia software.
Personally, I’m not all that convinced that anyone needs one of these quick-boot solutions. But if you spend all of your time using Skype, Firefox, and the handful of other apps that are available in HyperSpace, maybe it’s Windows you don’t actually need.
