A few words for Flash Develop

Developing a Flash/Flex with ActionScript is not popular with the most web developer in Vietnam ( just my opinion ;), my company got quiet difficult to employee flash developer). So when I try to explain about my works, some developers cannot image how can I create a flash project, manage the code. Not a Visual Studio with .NET, not a Netbeans or Eclipse for Java and PHP, it is Flash Develop, absolutly free and lite … and quite cool to manage an ActionScript (flash/flex) projects.

Here some screenshots  (taken from Flash Develop office site ) you can review and feel … :
