Not News about Free Software

This article reports news about encouraging a greater dependency upon proprietary software - Adobe AIR and Adobe Flash.

Apparently, there is also good news in this report: Adobe is liberating the SWF specification licensing terms to allow 3rd party implementations of SWF players.
