Microsoft Silverlight is a browser plugin but Adobe AIR is cross platform desktop runtime that allows developers to build desktop applications using web technologies

We have been seeing lot of blog posts that compares Adobe AIR and Silverlight. Maybe someone the same with me not like big developers like them,I can’t accept this comparison.

Microsoft Silverlight is a browser plugin and is sort of similar to Adobe’s Flash Player and Flex Framework taken together.

Adobe AIR is cross platform desktop runtime that allows developers to build desktop applications using web technologies, it has no real equivalent in the Microsoft world.

Really, there is no meaning in comparing these technologies.
