    I hate AIR. I wish they would kill it entirely.

    Isn't DRM dead or at least shown to be mostly ineffective?

    I avoid DRM like the plague, but only because it is such an annoyance. I'm all for developers getting paid and quelling piracy, but most DRM measures take things to such a level as to be obtrusive and hinder the pleasant user experience that I expect for my $$$$$.
  3. What does AIR have to do with DRM?

    AFAIK, AIR is a wrapper for Flash applications that allow them to act like Desktop application.
