Elementary OS beta reviewed

So as how I have reviewed Elementary OS before, I had some idea as of what I was heading in to.  However, to do the tl;dr for those that have a ten second attention span, here is the end result: It is nice, but still buggy.  Use if you want the latest, however, I would advise against it.  I found the desktop slow, and a but unresponsive at times.  Getting the LightDM to work correctly was horrible, every other login was just a black screen, I had to manually restart lightdm from virtual terminal way to many times.

Adobe Flash to be accelerated on netbooks

Nvidia and Broadcom promise

Since Flash obviously isn’t easy on the CPU which of course reflects on netbooks’ battery life, Nvidia and Broadcom announced full hardware Flash acceleration by upgrading Adobe’s plugin resulting in smooth playback of HD flash video and lower CPU usage.

Unfortunately, these improvements will initially run only on Nvidia’s Tegra solutions or Atom netbooks with Broadcom’s Crystal HD video acceleration add-on. This means that it’ll take a while before we see this in action and even longer before it becomes a mainstream feature.

We’re likely to see some other Flash acceleration announcements as well, but until we see this feature in action we can’t say more.

More here.
