Sweet Linux Air

From the RIA Cowboy himself. Yeehaw. While we're waiting for Air to be officially available on Linux...

*** WARNING - THIS IS TOTALLY UNSUPPORTED, UNENDORSED, AND A COMPLETE HACK ***

...

All I need is ADL - the testing tool for AIR applications. So I gave it a try on a Salesforce.com project I’m working on:

jamesw@dos:~/projects/mavericks/examples/air/AccountTracker/bin$ wine ~/flex_sdk-3_b1/bin/adl.exe salesforceTest-app.xml
And to my total surprise the AIR application loaded and ran on Linux! Sweet!
The one component that truly needs Windows or Mac right now can run on Wine on Linux. The degree the API is mapped to the Linux environment is probably limited, but for at least some things, developers can currently use Linux for Air.
