Open-source alternatives are fine, but try to find a new machine that doesn't use an ATi or Nvidia graphics card.

I'm not sure where you get your data, but Intel integrated graphics
outnumbers ATI and nVidia both (not together, though it gets close at times)
by a wide margin.

However, what this has to do with Firefox, Flash or Adobe Reader is not
clear. Are you getting this problem on machines with ATI and nVidia graphics
cards and no others?

The problem with Flash is it is video intensive. It requires a good video system.

FWIW, I have a Dell that has an integrated Intel Video controller that won't work properly with Linux. Installing an older Nvidia card and using the legacy driver from Nvidia (rpmfusion) made the system seem like a brand new computer.

Since installing No Script and Flash Block plugins, I find that Firefox never uses many resources. Over 170 tabs open and Firefox is only using about 3% of my resources. I would have to check on my home system but it is much better since installing the tools. There were times that it was so slow due to flash.

It is surprising the number of flash based ads and other items on many web pages. It can quickly add a massive load onto your system.
