Flex (possibly with AIR)

For me, using Flex is not about deployment. It's about ease of use and 
rapid development.

The fact that it deploys to a widely available platform is a great bonus, 
but I'd be just as happy if it would compile to HTML5 or Java or [insert 
your favorite runtime here]. 

That's what makes it different from other technologies and that's what 
should be the focus of the people that would point their attention to the 

Others might focus on the compilers and allow Flex to be deployed to 
different runtimes, but for me these are very different ball games (maybe 
not so clearly cut, but I think there's a clear separation line).
