Adobe Races Ahead Of Microsoft With Flex 2 Overhaul

Adobe Systems Flex 2 product line began shipping Wednesday, leaving Microsoft in the dust. With lower costs for entry level (savings are around $1,000 per developer license), Adobe is staking their claim. They also simultaneously released their latest version of Flash Player 9.

Many companies who primarily worked with .Net and were planning to use the WinFX platform are either going to Flash or considering it. Thomas Gonzalez, a co-founder and CTO of The Dashboard Co., said, ""It was kind of a toss-up between WinFX and Adobe, but the thing that threw it into Adobe's camp is that Flash is here now."

One drawback with Adobe is that the high end products have gone up in price – some went up as much as $5,000. Even so, Adobe and Flash are here now so that developers can get to work without waiting on Microsoft.
