Subject Re: Flex on top of Dart (was: To AS4 or not (was: Re: ASC 2.0 and Falcon))

Crazy how people on this list always think  you have to do ActionScript to
target Flash !
People there s a JS binding inside the Flash Player. Meaning anything that
compiles to JS (like Dart, Java, Scala, etc ..) can be used to write
applications for the Flash platform.

The Flash player is not the issue with Flex but more the  fact that one
have to use ActionScript and all the non free IDEs that come with  it.
ActionScript is a good language. But irrelevant in the Enterprise world.
