That sounds like two things I said mixed together. Flash thingies can
be made as standalone applications capable of interacting with your
file system by publishing them as AIR apps. Flex can be used to
develop rapid Internet applications that are played via the Flash
player in browsers. In both cases the applications would have a Flash
or Flex like feel to them, and would be the same on Mac and Windows.
Rev wouldn't do anything via AIR or Flex, it doesn't need to, it
makes its own applications. And those applications can more easily be
made to look correct for each OS. For a lot of people that would a
big benefit, and such apps could be made a lot faster than in Flash.
Sometime I might make some screen recordings of non-game Flash things
for you to see, but not right now. At the moment I'm trying to
convince Flash people that Revolution is a tool worth knowing about,
not the other way around. There are already too many Flash developers!
