While this may not have alot of practical application in vanilla Linux development this could mean alot in terms of standalone (as in no installed OS) applications/games. One thing that I think would be really neat would be a game that you simply pop in a CD and play a game, no installation required. It could boot the system and start the game in under a minute, most moden games take that long starting from an installed OS.

Japanese group releases Knoppix Linux CD that boots in less than a minute
