Well, I use FF on Linux and WXP, with Adobe Flash on both, and wouldn't 
describe them on either platform as "cpu-hogs". For me, the Linux 
versions of both run quite smoothly.

I can't say anything about performance. My personal laptop (with Linux) 
has a 1.5GHz Celeron M processor with 768MB of memory and the awful 
Intel video chipset that uses system memory for the video. My work 
laptop (with WXP) has a 1.8GHz Core 2 Duo with 2GB of memory and a nice, 
snappy non-Intel chipset that doesn't use system memory.
