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.

In the article:

There was immediate discussion of how we would love to see RISC OS, or even Haiku on such a machine.

I just wanted to make 100% clear that not all of old Acorn users are deluded that is a good idea. Waste of time. Might be interested in vitualizing a RiscPC on it, but not the insanity of RiscOS being the machine OS.
