hyperspace - Computer Definition
An instant-on operating system from Phoenix Technologies Ltd. (www.hyperspace.com) that can run stand alone or co-exist with Windows. As soon as the computer is turned on, the Linux-based HyperSpace enables access to the Web and other HyperSpace applications. It draws less power than Windows and can provide as much as 30% more running time on a battery charge. HyperSpace also automatically switches the computer between Ethernet, Wi-Fi and 3G networks. HyperSpace Single runs as the primary operating system in the computer. HyperSpace Dual runs side-by-side with Windows. See instant-on operating system.
