Hardware, Embedded Systems In 2009 ARM showed off prototype netbooks "capable of driving HD content, can surf the web for 8 hours, and will cost round and about 250 USD". Yet still, none have made it to the market. Why do you think this is so? Because ARM signed a deal with Adobe in 2008 to bring Flash and AIR to the ARM architecture, a promise they will finally deliver later this year. And you wonder why Apple won't have Flash on the iPhone when it can hold back an entire product category for two years.

AFAIK, the Gdium netbook (MIPS) does run Flash lite. I believe Gnash does a pretty good job anyway. Works pretty well with youtube and dailymotion.

Silversight? WTF? Who use Silversight? Who has even silversight installed?
