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.

I'm with you. For all of flash's lackluster performance on Linux, I say let it fall. If in the next 5 years, flash would fall by the wayside, all the better. Maybe then we could have an open streaming standard -- like ogg/theora maybe?
