    Thumbs down replace Express Gate with UNR on alternate power button

    I have an Asus 1005pe, and it has two power buttons. One is like a normal power on button and the other starts up a little fast operating system called Express Gate. It is based on splashtop (see splashtop.com). And that intern is based on linux. I would like to make it, so the Express Gate power button would load right into a full version of Ubuntu Netbook Remix. The normal power button would then be made to load windows. Does any one know how this could be done? Thanks.

    I too would like to know this. I have the Asus G71GX and it also has two power buttons to start the different OSs. Is it possible to install Ubuntu in place of Express Gate?

    I would also like to know more about this if anything comes about. I have searched for this before and saw where people were looking at the source code to see if it could be done.

    If any news comes about let me know. I have an ASUS G51vx (similar to the G71 just smaller) so I also would like to replace it.

    If I find anything I will try to come back here and share.
