I think a lot of people forgot a little too easily the good that Adobe brought to Flash and AIR
you may be the upset by the last few years, but that should not diminish what they did the 10 years before
it always gonna be the same thing "try to blame someone"
at first we gonna blame Apple because thoughts on Flash
then we gonna blame Google because they instigated the take down of the plugins
to now where we end up blaming Adobe for marketing/communication/etc
I don't get this constant blaming
whether Adobe or Harman promote very hard AIR it does not make a lot of difference
