New rules of the Desktop 2.0 game: Adobe Apollo reviewed again at TechCrunch

Probably this is the most important thing ever said about Apollo so loudly:

“The reason Apollo is so important is because it changes the rules of the game. It is taking the technologies and tenants of the web and bringing them to the desktop. Apollo is cross platform and gives web developers access to things like the file system and close integration with the operating system in a set of APIs that are the same whether you?????re writing in JavaScript or ActionScript. The web fostered an explosion in the creativity of application development and Apollo will undoubtedly do the same for desktop development.”
