The reason to install it and test it out on X86 is precisely so that one is able to make a statement like:
It is unbearable on X86, so it would be catastrophic on ARM.
Actually, no (though the notion is hilarious, I must say). It was actually pre-installed on a netbook, back in the early days of those - the first Asus Eee PC had it as part of its bizarre Debian/Xandros hybrid.
My experience of the (official) ARMv7 Flash plugin (at least on ARM Linux - can't comment on Android, as it was long-dead on that platform before I ever got any devices running it) is that it actually isn't completely horrendous, though. A shame that they discontinued it before really doing much with it, though.
