And does anyone know what percentage of developers use FlashDevelop? I, for
one, have never even seen their home page, let alone used or downloaded it.
Nor do I believe that any polls on any such boards that you didn't mention
really matter either. All of these boards will have only a percentage of
Flex and AS3 users, a percentage that is impossible for anyone to
determine. I imagine this is why the Apache saying exists: "If it didn't
happen in the mailing list, it didn't happen.".
