While searching for a touch screen/monitor system to be used with my openrd client project, I came across this interesting product from Technologic Systems:

http://www.embeddedarm.com/products/board-detail.php?product=TS-TPC-7395

It's based on a 200MHz ARM9 CPU. What interests me the most is the boot-up time - 1 second to a linux prompt. Wow, that's way faster than what the u-boot does. They are able to achieve this via Linux-boots-linux method [ http://www.embeddedarm.com/software/solutions-arm.php#linux-bootloader ]. It would be nice if sheevaplug and openrd base/client can use this approach. I wonder if there's such project aiming at replacing the default u-boot with linux boot loader. Any pointers are welcome.
