The AIR rocket has launched

Adobe has finally released Flex 3 and AIR 1.0. This is a major milestone in the evolution of RIA and business applications as we know them.  I’ll be the first one to admit that I did not jump on the AIR bandwagon from the start. Obviously, my focus on enterprise level applications has blurred my vision. As time passed and I actually tried building a couple LiveCycle ES applications using AIR as the client, I quickly realized that my initial "poo poo" opinion of AIR was dramatically incorrect. AIR is going to revolutionize the way enterprise applications are built and distributed.

Take the time to check it out. The buzz is all around consumer type applications for now, but as more and more enterprise developers discover the power and flexibility or AIR; it will spread like wild-fire.
