Adobe Flex builder no longer on Linux… May 27, 2009

This might seem like old news, but its actually just rare news, more than old. Did you know that Adobe was developing a Linux version of Flex builder? They have put the project on hold according to this artice: http://gruchalski.com/2009/04/22/flex-builder-3-for-linux-on-hold/ What is interesting here is that Flex builder is a plugin for Eclipse which runs on Java, so theoretically there can’t be a whole lot different between the Linux and Windows version of the plugin, surely? Okay, granted, there will be differences, but they can not possibly be so dramatic that you can’t develop all three?

Its a set back for Linux to see this happen. Go to http://bugs.adobe.com/jira/browse/FB-19053 this instance and vote the bug up!
