Gears, Air, Light and more

There is something of a war going on it would seem as all the big guns try and snare the market in extending the web based applications we now know and love beyond some of the constraints of the browser - even onto the desktop.

I dont understand the implications of all this yet - but it certainly looks like it deserves some more investigation. To kick things off here are some links:
Adobe AIR
Microsoft Silverlight
Google Gears

Some emotive coverage of the 'conflict' is on these sources: ZDnet, Builder.au, BeyondWWW, rdews, FlexDJ, RubyOR and on Blogs like this.
