Links list special: Apollo launch edition.

One of the things that I've been really excited about for a while is Adobe's new Apollo runtime environment, which enables web developers to build standalone apps using HTML, JavaScript, Flash and/or Flex. Yesterday Adobe launched the first public alpha version of Apollo, and what follows are a bunch of reactions.


Looking very cool. It seems to me to be very much like a Java that might actually work: Cross-platform support, open coding architecture, and a rich set of APIs for interactive projects. I wonder about the security aspects of the software and what avenues it may open up for malicious coding since the desktop code can write to the local disk?
