Hardware, Embedded Systems Few hardware vendors have not yet launched their own mini laptop (or, "netbook"). Most brands these days produce their own version of the same hardware, with Intel's i386-compatible Atom cpu's and Windows XP installed on a spinning hard drive or sometimes still a solid state disk. Some Linux models are still sold by some vendors, among whom Asus, which more or less started selling in this OLPC-inspired genre of laptops.

No Adobe Flash == Awesome! I've had enough of that greedy CPU hog, thank you. Both the open source implementations of Flash (Gnash and Swfdec) work fine with youtube, plus you can use Totem's Youtube plugin if you don't even want to use a web browser and you're using a GNOME environment. As for the other uses for Flash... I admit, I don't use them enough to care all that much, and it's not like you're going to be watching HD flash content on this thing anyway, and you'd probably end up actually using Flash a lot less than you'd initially think.
