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.

You're already asking enough from users to switch from Windows.

Taking away Hulu and Flash games goes too far. They'll view the browsing experience as grossly inferior when they keep coming across empty white boxes where Flash is supposed to be.

No, we're asking that users switch to ARM-friendly Linux distros, instead of x86-only distros.
