Nobody except Adobe has any influence on this.
if you don't have a lot of money ( thousands of dollars) .

Adobe has abandoned support of flash on ARM (or any mobile) processors. The latest version of Android had dropped support for it. It is being replaced.
Getting accelerated html 5 video would be a much more valuable feature for the Pi.

(You can play YouTube video's on Pi using XBMC or from command line: http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewt ... =35&t=8157)
