    Question Anyone looked into ReadyOn for XP boot?

    I was stumbling around looking for hardware, and I stumbled on this little software package: ReadyOn -- suppoed to be an "Instant On" solution for XP embedded, but reading further into it, it turns out XP Professional is supported as well! I hadn't contacted them about it yet -- don't really have time right now anyway -- just wondered if anyone had checked into it...

    Its perfect, but it costs $6700 for 1000 run times. A 1000 person group buy is the only reasonable way I see, haha.
    nice find tho

    ouch! Well at that price it's $6.70 per seat, so it's stupid that they won't sell it in single units for $20 or something if it really works.. Did you contact them or find this number on the site?

    update -- sent them an email; we'll see what happens.

    The number was on the site...but I'll email them today. It seems stupid that they won't sell individually, but I guess they want to keep it in the kiosk market.

    I just sent them an email also... If they want to stick w/ kiosks and the like, surely they have to realize that a lot of those are one-off projects.

    I got a response back. They license ReadyOn for $25/unit and it is available for XP pro. I may pick up a copy to see how it works out. Gonna call him and see what exactly it's about.

    $25 may be a small price to pay for an instant boot/hibernate type feature that actually works, so I'll keep everyone posted.

    Yes.. I will keep all of my progress noted in this thread. For reference, my test will be between XP Pro installations on a VIA M100000 -- with and without ReadyOn.
