Adobe joins Linux Foundation, develops AIR for Linux

San Francisco - Adobe Systems released an early alpha version of its rich Internet application platform AIR for Linux on Monday, and announced that it has joined the Linux Foundation, a nonprofit organization that promotes and standardizes Linux.

AIR (Adobe Integrated Runtime) allows Internet-enabled applications to run on Windows and Mac OS X desktops. AIR applications use the same technologies as Web applications built to run inside a browser, including HTML (Hypertext Markup Language), AJAX (Asynchronous JavaScript and XML), and Flash, Adobe's own multimedia programming language.

The AIR runtime framework is already available for Windows and Mac OS X:
Adobe's goal is to allow such applications to run on Linux too, although some applications may not work with the version released Monday.
