Subject Re: Installer Revisited

That's interesting.

On Mac, folks are given a dmg file that essentially installs the installer
and I don't believe it requires that AIR is already installed.  Or am I
wrong about that?  

On Linux, you're saying the package we create still requires a separate
install of AIR?

I'm not a huge fan of the "install the installer" experience.  I don't
know if there is an alternative when using AIR.  That's one reason why I'm
hoping to leverage the installer to be able to install other Apache Flex
stuff (and maybe other stuff as well).  It looks like node.js has a
package manager that sort of does the same thing.  So does cygwin setup on

But having to install AIR separately on Linux would be annoying.  Can we
count on Java being on every OS?  I heard it isn't on WinXP.  Do we need
to support that?
