It's in the Air.

Posted 12-23-2008 at 06:42 PM by Hitboxx


I just tried Adobe's put-the-web-on-your-desktop thing called Air and it's pretty neat. It is similar to those widgets, gadgets,..etc but on a grandeur scale. Though still in the infancy as far as application availability is concerned, nonetheless it is a neat platform and it works.

I downloaded it from the site, installed it on my Fedora, browsed (from Firefox) through the application listings at their site, and saved the ones I wanted to my /home. Then used the Adobe Application Installer which was earlier installed from the main app and pointed it to the directory containing the Air apps. A few clicks and tada! all apps installed with desktop shortcuts to launch them.

I tried out two apps, one a video catalogue kinda thing and another a Dutch music TV.

Both worked fine and I was already enjoying the content on my desktop. I'm impressed .
