Ok. So the OS is ARM based, like a PDA. And that means I won't be able to run most programs for Linux, but only ones with support for PDA/ARM Linux. So  I can take Linux off the Gumstix? But can the Gumstix run Windows Mobile 5, because Win CE is practically obsolete.

Alex

be able to run flash from adobe on arm based linux. It is not offered.
There is however an open source flash project which now has the
capabilities of running videos from youtube. I've been told the open
source flash player is compatible with flash player 7 stuff.
