Adobe will no longer support Adobe AIR for Linux desktops

I use Ubuntu, and like some Adobe AIR applications, like the Adobe AIR implementation of Tweetdeck, so this is a disappointment.

This now from Adobe: “Beginning June 14 2011, Adobe AIR is no longer supported for desktop Linux distributions. . . . Lifetime AIR for Linux desktop downloads represent less than 0.5% of total AIR desktop downloads, which number over 450 million. Therefore, Adobe has decided to change the distribution model for Linux and direct these resources toward its mobile efforts. Adobe’s efforts are focused on supporting operating systems that are most important to its customers, and that demonstrate the greatest opportunity for future growth for our partners and developers.”
