My gumstix would run Flash Player 9 for Linux. However, only Flash Player 7 is out for PDAs. Is the Linux OS more like a PDA OS, or a PC OS? Also, can the verdex motherboards connect to USB wireless network adapters?
thanks for your reply,
Alex

Well, the XScale CPUs are popular in PDAs and high-end phones...so consider it more like a PDA.

You can run limited windowing systems. You can run a lot of Linux programs...it really depends on the resource footprint of what you're trying to do.

It's platform specific.

Neither. See above.
