Adobe AIR, launched in 2007, is a unique platform (a "Runtime environment") that allows developers to transform Internet applications into desktop apps. Why should you, the businessperson or entrepreneur, care about it though? Since AIR's release, it has quickly grown into a fast, reliable, powerful platform for getting things done on the desktop. Unlike bulkier desktop programs like Photoshop, AIR apps load and work fast and are built to integrate with the web.
