I put together an N330-based machine recently, running Ubuntu 9.10
with Flash 10.0 (not the new 10.1 beta). I can confirm that the Hulu
desktop does not work well at all. However, if I run Hulu via Boxee,
it runs very well, even for HD content, though I think it is
downsampled. I haven't been able to get the new Flash working yet,
because I'm running 64-bit Linux and the new Flash beta is 32-bit
only. I'll let you know if I manage to get the new beta running. If
you have instructions for getting the new Flash beta working on a
64-bit system, I'll be willing to try it out.
