Adobe AIR is a cross-operating system runtime being developed by Adobe that allows developers to leverage their existing web development skills to build and deploy rich Internet applications to the desktop. It is a platform that runs applications across multiple systems without coding in more than one language. Adobe AIR enables you to have your favorite web apps with you all the time. AIR apps run on your device without a browser, providing the convenience of a native app. It's powerful and respected for giving people the same end-user experience, whether on Windows, Mac, or Linux. One very well-known AIR app is TweetDeck. If you try to install an AIR app without having previously installed AIR, you'll be automatically prompted to download it.

AIR has allowed developers to make hybrid applications, or desktop tools that can integrate with various Web services, while still allowing some offline functionality that Web browsers don't yet have. This includes things like taskbar and dock notifications. With these latest updates, Adobe is really improving AIR as an alternative development environment and maintaining its relevance on the Web.

The best thing about Adobe AIR is probably the fact that it allows a multitude of applications to be run on different operating systems without major differences. When it is complete, Linux users will get to enjoy all the features present on the other operating systems.

It is still not fully functional and some applications take a lot of resources out of the system when they are running.
