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.

No flash = say byebye to most of the multimedia contents on web. No youtube, no hulu. If you wanna spend that much money to buy a rock with which you can only read BBC or maybe slashdot, sure...


So all those computers that don't have a Flash player are rocks???

Many people are fine using the opensource implementations of Flash. On the other hand, Mono and Java are supported on Loongson.

I totally disable Flash in Firefox on my Windows machine. I do all my surfing with Firefox, and only use IE to view videos on youtube.
