Quick booting Linux to use as a partner OS
I'm after a quick booting Linux distro for a friend's 3yr old laptop (Acer Aspire 4530).
I've fresh installed Windows and it boots in 1min or so but one of these fabled 10-second boots would be great as a partner OS.
It needs to be easy, allow access to the Internet, possibly Skype, access to Windows partition to listen to music upload photos to facebook.
I'm not a Linux geek and I've no intention on learning, faffing about with drivers, so it must work out of the box!
XPud and PrestoMyPC ($20) look promising but don't work on this hardware.
Splashtop also looks easy but doesn't allow local drive access.
Is there a dream distro out there for me?
