Unfortunately, Flex for Linux Is Dead

Anonymous's picture

If you check carefully, you'll find that Flex Builder for Linux hasn't been updated in over a year (other than a minor release so that it would continue functioning after a cutoff date). I've discussed this issue with other Flex developers and unfortunately we all seem to be in agreement... Adobe is not going to continue developing on the Linux platform. You can simply look at the absence of any activity by Adobe on that subject especially after they just released a new version of Flex, now called Flash Builder 4.
