Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Asus' recent launch of the initially Linux-less Eee Box compact desktop PC mentioned the machine will come with ExpressGate fast info access technology. But what does it do exactly?

ExpressGate gets it to her more quickly than a regular Windows XP start-up might be - five seconds from boot up, no less - but she then faffs around Skyping people, watching YouTube vids and poring over her photo collection, all bringing a look of ineffable joy to her life.

The upshot? She's happy as larry, but so late for work she gets given her marching orders as soon as she finally tips up at the office, we imagine.
