For the lazy, they’re going to make Flash MX work well with Wine, and if that’s popular, do a native port to Linux. They also mentioned an upcoming package that will do for XML what Dreamweaver does for HTML. That’s unfortunate. 😉
I’ve never made anything in Flash, primarily because I’d have to scrounge a windows box just to mess with it. Secondarily because I suck at art. and Flash is art. Well, it SHOULD be.
