Adobe brings AIR to Linux, joins Linux Foundation

AIR is Adobe's software for running and creating Web applications that run both online and offline. AIR 1.0, released late last month, runs on Windows and Mac OS. Adobe had said it will port AIR to Linux and then mobile devices.

As part of the AIR-on-Linux release, Adobe is making an update to the alpha version of its Flex Builder framework for Linux. Both will be made available at Adobe Labs for free and will be completed later this year.

Adobe said that it joined the Linux Foundation to help promote rich Internet application development on Linux. It's a bid to raise its commitment to Linux-based software on the desktop, where it's support until now has been limited.

Read story.

Thanks for the post and the link, Bill!

The only two applications that keep me from being completely free
from Windows are Adobe InDesign and Photoshop. Have had a little
fun with Photoshop Express.

IMO The Linux Foundation is the best thing to happen to Linux/OSS since 1991.

You're welcome... I'm glad you enjoyed it.

Personally, I'm excited by all the activity from hardware and software developers creating products for Linux. I've hated MS from the day my Commodore home computer died. The move from the C=64 to a Tandy 1200 running MS-DOS 2.11 was like a giant leap backwards to a time before real computing began! But at that time, MS-DOS-based systems were the only mainstream option available...

At least now with Linux, I can spend all my time enjoying computing, rather than wasting half of it protecting my pc from internet predators and performing mundane system tasks to keep it running properly.
