It’s big news for those of use that make our living creating rich internet applications targeting the Flash Platform. I’ve already started my first Flex 2 client project and I know it will only snowball from here. Many thanks to the excellent people at Adobe that worked so hard on Flash Player 9 and Flex 2. Both are milestone products that will drastically change the way I do my job. And that’s a good thing. ;)
Once again Adobe has surprised me with their pricing model for Flex Builder. At a VERY affordable $499 US, Flex Builder should be a part of every Flash developers software library. Flex Charting is only $299 US and the two bundled together are only $749 US. This pricing is great news for those of us hoping for a rapid Flex 2 adoption.
