Uninstalling Adobe AIR on Mac OS X
#!/bin/sh
# Installing Adobe AIR creates an application called "Adobe AIR Uninstaller" in /Applications/Utilities.
# Unfortunately, running this application does not uninstall the application and instead, it seems to
# unhelpfully confirm that it's installed (http://twitter.com/modernscientist/status/495388916267384833/photo/1).
# The proper way to run this application as an uninstaller is to run the enclosed from the command line
# with the flag "-uninstall" as superuser:
sudo /Applications/Utilities/Adobe\ AIR\ Uninstaller.app/Contents/MacOS/Adobe\ AIR\ Installer -uninstall
# You can also redownload the application and run the uninstaller from there if it is no longer
# present on the Mac: http://techbookshelf.com/2010/03/02/how-to-uninstall-adobe-air/
