Subject Re: [VOTE] Release InstallApacheFlex 1.0 - RC8
Date Wed, 24 Oct 2012 06:55:10 GMT
I was thinking the same.
I don't have any application that camel cases it's name on my mac. 
Check out the Flash Player and general adobe Installer apps. They all have long descriptive
names.
I'm convinced this is the way we should follow.
