Michael writes "ASUSTek has introduced the P5E3 Deluxe motherboard, which in addition to using Intel's new X38 Chipset also features a soon-to-be-announced technology by DeviceVM. SplashTop is an instant-on Linux desktop environment that is embedded onto this motherboard. Within seconds of turning on the P5E3 Deluxe motherboard, you can boot into this Linux environment that currently features a Mozilla-based web browser and the Skype VoIP client. Browser and VoIP settings can be saved and this SplashTop Linux can be updated to provide new features and support. The motherboard's dual Gigabit network interfaces and its draft-N wireless also work from this lightweight Linux desktop. At Phoronix is a review of this $360 motherboard embedded with Linux and a web browser."
