MSI Presents Winki OS
Author: Cássio LimaDate: March 5, 2009 - 5:53 PM PST

More Info: http://global.msi.com.tw/index.php?func=newsdesc&news_no=737

Motherboard manufacturers are always trying to implement exciting new features on their product in order to make the user’s experience more enjoyable and easy. Following this tendency, MSI showed during CeBIT 2009 Winki, an operating system based on a Linux distribution that comes installed on a flash memory and that can be hooked up on one of the motherboard’s USB headers. Once the Winki OS is loaded, a screen shows up and offers functions like built-in web browsing, MSN, Skype, ICQ and Yahoo, so there’s no need to load the main OS from hard disk. You can even use the Winki with a system without a hard disk (this is the same idea of ASUS Express Gate feature). So you can have a system with common PC functions with no hard disk, thus saving some money. Winki will be available on some MSI motherboards, but the list of them has not been disclosed yet.
