Have any of you worked with AIR?
Okay, I really don't get the atmosphere of this article. It's trashing a new product that although only in beta is already building a fair following.
The technology is impressive. I find the comment "trying to compete with Microsoft & Google Gears" almost comical. Wait, who's trying to catch up to who?
Just lame to see an article trashing a technology...perhaps the author was just irked by the statement of "feature complete". Clearly, they're just stupid...as they don't understand the development cycle.
The newly released beta's of AIR & Flex 3 are "feature complete betas", this is where the developer decides to stop adding new features and focus on getting all the kinks out. (Sure a few features might be dropped or added before the final version if problems arise. Hence it's still a beta. But it's predicted to remain with the released feature set.)
Sorry, this post was just lame by my standards.
- Low content
- Almost all opinion without fact
- Mere unsubstantiated criticism
Not news....not worth my time...more akin to slander than anything worth posting.
For those who have NOT checked out Adobe's recent innovation, please pause and take a look. Adobe AIR is a powerful innovation. And Adobe's not stopping! Adobe also just announced a revolutionary technology - "thermo" that let's graphic designers implement RIA technology right off their graphic designs. Not for everyone, but has a lot of potential.
