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.

Heh, I was reading the linked articles not the OS News one. Ah well...

Regarding RiscOS on these things, I can see it being a hobby project but nothing more without a really serious update to the underpinnings of the OS, which I'm sure would be more time+effort than using Linux.
