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.

RE[6]: RiscOS no no no no

Member since:

I was very careful to NOT say that all they could use was RISC OS, although I see I did say that there's a demographic that can't figure out XP. (Although, there are a couple users here and there on the comp.sys.acorn newsgroups that stick with RISC OS because of certain programs that they like, that are unavailable on other platforms.)

I'm well aware that they COULD use other platforms, and just don't want to. That's my point, that they don't want to. RISC OS works for them, so why switch?
