Subject Re: [PR] Getting people excited about Flex

Last year i've worked for M6, a french TV channel, we made a full Flex website ( Flex 4.6 )


It's a good example of "graphic" application : clean UI, lot of transitions, Facebook Open
Graph integration, premium video features…
You can access to most of the features without any login, except perhaps for some of the videos
if you are not in France.

requires a healthy wait at startup (at least at home over DSL) and the task to perform takes
"a while" so most folks won't really try it to completion and get a good feel for what it
can do.

apps over slower connections startup reasonably quickly, but it I am still searching for a
task that the public can accomplish that doesn't require money, logins, several steps, etc,
but showcases any advantages of Flex.

to do in HTML.  So really, maybe developer productivity is our best selling point these days?
 Or is it the ability to use structured programming?
