Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

How was the streaming Adobe Flash Video performance on this hardware under Linux, in your experience?
What does that have to do with the OPs hardware? The OP clearly stated in posts #1, #4, and #10, and implied in post #11, that flash works in Windows on this hardware. Thus your continued implications to the contrary seem to be rather pointless. If it works in Windows, then it should work in Linux, the only feasible problem being either some configuration issue or, as you noted early, the crappy Linux flash plugin.
