.NET was chosen mostly because 1) it has WPF which is vector-based; 2) it allows to code in a functional language like F#. Tabbles is entirely written in F#, which greatly reduces development time; 3) the .net api is huge and well backed, which in our eyes reduced the risk not to find the function that will do what you need.
I confess I had never heard of Adobe Air, which is interesting, being cross-platform.
