    I'd love to see in the test suite a benchmark to measure Flash video playback performance and resource consumption (CPU and RAM) using the Adobe Flash plugin (for Linux, Windows, etc.). I doubt it would happen since the plugin isn't available on all platforms, and besides it's not open-source.

    However, such a test would resolve (in mind at least) whether a Atom-based Linux netbook could reasonably be used for web-surfing sites featuring Flash video (YouTube, Hulu, etc.)
    Well this wouldn't be a problem for the ION systems in windows as Flash now supports nvidia's Purevideo. As far as vdpau support for Flash in linux I'm still waiting for a reply from Adobe on that if it is ever going to be incorporated in their linux versions.
