LXer: Adobe Drops Linux Desktop Support For AIR
Published at LXer:

Adobe doesn't see "the year of the Linux desktop" happening, so they've decided to kill off the Linux desktop client for their AIR run-time. Adobe AIR 2.7 was recently released for creating rich Internet applications, but the Linux desktop client wasn't updated. This wasn't an oversight or delay in development, but Adobe is dropping the Linux desktop client so they can focus on mobile platforms such as Android and Apple iOS...

Oh darn one more useless pos from Adobe that won't run on linux. Isn't this a good thing?

The only decent Air app was tweetdeck and you can run it in Chrome.

You gotta love Adobe. They discontinued the Linux version of Air, and then they started building a "porting kit" to license (at a hefty fee, no doubt) to companies who want to port Air to Linux.

Typical BS from Adobe. I think I'll stay away from their s***.
