Following our ASUS Motherboard Ships With Embedded Linux, Web
Browser article, ASUS has released a series of slides to Phoronix
containing additional information about their "Express Gate"
functionality. Express Gate is meant to be complementary to your
traditional operating system for when you want to surf the Internet
without fear of Windows attacks and when you don't want to wait for your
computer to turn on. ASUS Express Gate also consumes less power than
using a traditional operating system. We've been asked in the Phoronix
Forums how this technology works, and this ASUS document did provide a
brief technical overview.
