Maybe i wasn't clear. What happens on linux when you run an AIR app from the command line in the background with no x server, no desktop, no display device? Will it run? Will it crash?

To run an Air app you need to install Air installer.
One of the requirements of Air Installer is either GNOME or KDE.
So I think it will not run.
More requirements here:
Requirements link helps a bunch, thanks. At the end of the day xvfb shows potential of getting me there.
Something to consider for Linux, if you haven't crossed this part of the bridge yet. We also wanted to use Air for our Linux deliverable (we will use it for the Windows application). However, the Linux is to be open source, which a lot of companies may want to provide. Dev examined the requirements, and for several reasons, decided it wouldn't be a good idea, so we chose instead to generate to DocBook.
