Linux In a blog post today, Adobe's Director of Open Source and Standards said: "we will be focusing on supporting partner implementations and will no longer be releasing our own versions of Adobe AIR and the AIR SDK for desktop Linux". McAllister says that "way back in 1999" he'd predicted "a significant market for desktop Linux by 2005. Obviously I was wrong. So we, Adobe, also need to shift with the market." Source code for AIR will be made available to partners so they can make their own Linux implementations if they so desire. Is there anyone in the audience who cares about no more AIR on Linux from Adobe? Anyone...?

I didn't realize this hadn't been announced yet. It was only a few nights ago that I decided to see what Linux options Pandora has since I wanted to try it on my Atom nettop running Meego. It turns out that their Desktop app was written for AIR. It was the AIR system requirements page that mentioned their deciding to focus on mobile devices, etc. Then a couple days later, the blog post. I've heard so little about AIR since its launch that it didn't even occur to me that this might be newsworthy. Heh.

Kindof offtopic, but Pithos on Linux is great for Pandora.
