Comment: Launching without being online.. (Score 1) 297

"Once the Apollo apps are created, users can launch them from their desktops, without using their browser or connecting online."

Sounds a lot like Microsoft's ClickOnce technology: http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/netframework/aa49 7348.aspx

And Microsoft "auto-updates" Windows machines (whether or not you want them to, it would seem) to include the latest frameworks and such. Regardless, how does what Adobe does improve on what Microsoft (and I'm sure some F/OSS alternatives) already do?

Some people claim that the UNIX learning curve is steep, but at least you only have to climb it once.

Working...
