[PLUG] Boot Linux and browse Web while waiting for Windows to finish booting...

Linux fans,

This is one of the most hilarious things I've ever seen -- and it's
not even supposed to be a joke!

Apparently, Windows takes so long to boot that Phoenix Technologies,
a major BIOS vendor, now offers an option to keep you busy while
waiting.  It boots Linux, connects to the Internet and runs Firefox,
so you can start browsing immediately, while waiting for Windows to
finish booting.  Incredible!  How can Windoze be SO much slower than
Linux that this product actually exists?  Hilarious!
