LXer: Adobe kills AIR for Linux. Seriously guys, who cares?

Published at LXer:

It might have come as a rude shock to Linux fans everywhere when Adobe decided to drop Adobe AIR for Linux. Well, it wasn’t as if it was popular on Linux but still, no one expected Adobe to do that. The reason they gave was ludicrous, stating that only 0.5 % of AIR users were on Linux platform. But as a longtime Linux user I consider this as good riddance. In fact, I think that the Linux community will actually benefit from this decision. Here’s how.
