So, just few days after Microsoft announced its SilverLight platform, Adobe answered making Flex an Open Source platform. I suggest you have a look at Scoble‘s page “Adobe opensources Flex“, especially for the two videos he recorded with some of the Adobe thinking heads.
Wow! How things are changing fast!
There is one consideration that I want to make here. Now, both Adobe and Microsoft have the following approach to their flagship UI technology:
|Express – Entry Point||SilverLight||Flex|
|Full Product||Vista –
- An “entry point” offer, freely available or even Open Sourced, which paves the road to the flagship product.
