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.
