That's an interesting suggestion. Currently, we don't have any plans to make Flex Builder open source. However, we have made some changes to address the demand among casual users (hobbyists or people learning Flex on the side).
This week, we announced that starting next month, the entry level Flex Builder product will be available for only $250 (previously it was $500). This should put it within reach of a lot more developers looking to expand their skills.
Also, don't forget that you can use the SDK with any text editor if you want to just try out the programming model.
Is that going to be $250 for the Windows and the Linux versions of FB3? That will be awesome. I can have one at work and one at home.
I think lowering pricing is a good strategy, expecially considering the fact that most linux users get all their software for free (as in beer, regardless 90% is also free as in free speech).
I'll certainly buy a Flex3 license for Linux (no matter the price) as soon as the final product will be available.
