Abode Blends Web/OS Development
Adobe is taking a stab not just at Web development, but at rich application
building, as well. Apollo,
now in alpha test
(how I've missed that term, overwhelmed by a tidal wave
of CTPs, RCs, RTMs and other inane Microsoft names for test software), takes
the best of what Adobe has learned with Web development and ties this to OS-style
services such as printer drivers and personalization.
I hope this tool is a winner, partly because it will defuse the religious debate
of thin vs. thick clients, but mostly because it will force Microsoft and others
to build more flexible development tools.
