flex builder for freeee

So yeah, Flex Builder is free if you meet a few criteria.
You must either be unemployed, a student, or an educator.
I fall into the latter category, so I get it for free, along with as many licenses as I need (want), just as soon as I get around to scanning my ID, but I would put money on many people on this board falling into at least one of those categorys.

oooh, I'm a fan of Flash Develop (as if it wasn't obvious), but I'll definitely check this out.

And seriously though, its much easier to say "unemployed" rather than student.

If you choose unemployed, you can't use the product for any commercial purposes, so digging out a student ID might be better.

I work in the IT department at a K-12 school corporation and this is how I got the previous version of Flash Builder. It's a pretty nice deal. However, I still prefer FlashDevelop.

I tried both.  I know I'm kinda new to this but flash develop is much easier to use.  Course it doesn't have the sheer power builder does.   YOu don't get that little design mode :/   But really, I like code better...even with dreamweaver I use it for code, not the design mode.   I might as well use notepad but hey, i like the syntax colors. ;)
