Could this be the first step to a version of Photoshop for Linux? Perhaps it’s too early to say, but the fact remains: Adobe has joined the Linux Foundation. As PC World reports, the software firm announced its move together with the alpha release of its Adobe Integrated Runtime (AIR) web application platform for Linux.
Despite having officially joined the likes of Google, HP, IBM, and Nokia in the ranks of the Linux Foundation, Adobe is withholding the source code for AIR. Furthermore, as PC World points out, the license agreement for the Linux version of AIR forbids attempts to “reverse engineer, decompile, disassemble or otherwise attempt to discover the source code of the software.”
