Asus' ExpressGate 2.0 Instant-On OS Demoed
In April of 2008, Asus' instant-on OS SlashTop was rebranded as "ExpressGate" and almost exactly two years on, we're getting a little sneak-peak at ExpressGate 2.0.
Earlier this month, the technology industry gathered in Germany for CeBit and Asus was there to demo the company's second iteration of ExpressGate. Notebook Italia (via Engadget) captured it all on video.
Everything looks a little sleeker than before, and as Engadget's Donald Melanson points out, Asus seems to have taken a few from Palm and WebOS' cards system. There's also a simple little dock for applications and more customization options, which allow you to change desktop themes and UI. Perhaps most notable is the addition of touchscreen support to accommodate the Eee T91MT and Eee T101MT
