Default ARM CPUs not powerful enough for Netbooks?

There are a lot of ongoing discussions regarding the huge potential of ARM micro-architecture chips on the market of netbooks as well as the end of Intel/x86 and Microsoft Windows domination. However, consumers buying netbooks powered by ARM chips and Linux should know: they will have to tackle with poor video support as well as limited software base, claim developers of such machines.

Microprocessors based on ARM micro-architecture are not supported by Adobe Flash that is used to enable Internet-based video as well as many web-sites, which significantly decreases abilities to access certain content or information by end-users. Moreover, there are no standards for Linux applications that are used on mobile devices. Finally, as consumers are starting to demand higher quality videos, higher resolution screens, multitasking and so on, performance provided by ARM chips may be insufficient.
