Bypass OS boot up, HyperSpace

Imagine that you are in hurry in the mean time you bring your laptop in the hotspot area. You want to send an e-mail or instant messaging to your contact let say a short but important message. But the problem is as the OS like Windows got more complex, startup times also getting looonger up to 5 minutes or more to boot up before the you can use e-mail or IM.

Phoenix Technologies, the company that providing the BIOS(es) used by numerous motherboard manufacturers, now is planning a new system that can bypass Windows which knows as HyperSpace. Hyperspace is a simple OS that sits on top of the BIOS, that runs side-by-side with Windows. Apparently it can run most Windows software. Woody Hobbs, CEO Phoenix Technologies thinks it will mean that content providers will be able to create "instant-on" applications like media players, and PC system vendors will be able to embed purpose-built software into new computers.

The technology expected to start from end of next year which mean it's a looooongg way to go.
