I often muse that one of the primary reasons I can't break the MS Windows habit is that Adobe doesn't treat Linux as a first class target platform. I've blogged about this before, but it is still annoying.
And Mac isn't an option for several reasons:
- Mac often seems pretentious and preachy ... like a Prius. Too much smug in this world already.
- Paying excessive fees for hardware just because of a depiction of somewhat used fruit seems silly
- I prefer Archos (way to go French engineers! Though stop nickel-and-diming us over codecs and such.) and going Mac would probably be a gateway to iPods
- Ditto with respect to Android. Come on Verizon Wireless, do it already.
I was verifying that Flex Builder on Linux is dead - it is ... damn. Anyway, I happened to notice an interesting project linked in one of the comments.
Flash MiniBuilder is an online ActionScript 3.0 (AS3) IDE created in Flash. Most cool is that it supports code completion and is actually quite responsive. The front end is pure Actionscript and the compiler is a Java applet. It looks like it is generally well received by those that give it a whirl (though not without issues) and is an actively developed project.
Stuff missing: introspection, debugger, profiler, project support, ...
