AIR spam

So I was installing a fresh version of Acrobat Reader 9 on an XP machine a few days ago and guess what … it comes bundled with AIR runtime by the looks (and there is no option to select/deselect when you try to install).

“Interesting” tactic by Adobe to rapidly grow the installed base who can run AIR applications.

Installer options:

Acrobat Installer
Acrobat Installer

 

My Add/Remove programs after installation

Air installs with Acrobat Reader
Air installs with Acrobat Reader
