I've toyed with netboot using GPXE and since it supports HTTP
downloads of the initrd, it is lightning fast compared to standard
TFTP.  Playing around with MiniMyth and a slow VIA CPU, it boots in
1-2 minutes which only happens if suspend/resume fails for some
reason.  I would plan to do the same should I purchase the ION

Has anyone heard of other manufacturers releasing ION-based
motherboards or is it a one man show for the foreseeable future?
