Subject Re: alternatives to flash builder

I've used both FDT and IntelliJ.  I use IntelliJ for my development 95% of
the time now, switching to Eclipse for some obscure tool that requires it
(AWS Beanstalk deployment, Android Tools, etc).  I know a lot of people who
like and use FDT, but for me, I had nothing but licensing issues and slow
responses from them for about a month (they ended up getting it resolved,
but for the $500 I paid and was unable to use it for nearly 45 days) I
was disappointed.

The guys at JetBrains (IntelliJ) are stand-up, and really have made Flex /
AS3 development a breeze.  If you are used to Eclipse based IDEs, there is
some getting used to, but in the end, it is worth it. They've been real
fast in closing bugs that are found, and have been adding features pretty
regularly to the IDE.  It is worth the try.
