The problem with Flash is not the technology but what it is abused for: 
most Flash sites are simply marketing dross. Where it has a valid 
application, such as video chat, it is unfortunately so resource-hungry 
that while it does execute on my N800, it's so slow that a click takes 
3-4 mins to be responded to. That will improve as clock rates improve.
