DeviceVM's SplashTop, a product we had named as one of the greatest Linux innovations in 2007, is sharing a booth this week at the Consumer Electronic Show (CES) with ASUS. At their booth we were allowed to check out a SplashTop demo running on an ASUS notebook! This notebook has yet to be introduced by ASUS, but it's intended for high-end gaming and comes with SplashTop Linux as a complementary operating system. This version of SplashTop is slightly updated and has new features too.

Immediately after the system POSTed, we noticed an updated splash screen. The options now include Web, DVD, Music, Photo, Chat, Skype, and Video.

This next version of DeviceVM's SplashTop ships with Corel's LinDVD, in order to provide legal DVD playback capabilities. We had briefly watched a DVD inside SplashTop and it had indeed worked, all without ever touching the hard drive / primary operating system. In addition, SplashTop has provided their own music player with support for MP3 files.
