          Flex is the more developer oriented application. If you fancy you job as writing endless lines of code and do some really serious and complex programming - Flex is the right thing for you. Flash also becomes more and more developer oriented application, although lot of people still love its creative potential as animation tool (myself included ) In fact, Flash was meant as application for creating animation movies, but that was long time ago ...

          I really hope there aren't further numbers after AS but who knows... we may not be that lucky ...  AS3 is a full featured object oriented programming language, like C, meaning you can achieve anything with it. But few people use it, especially designers - who don't want even to hear about AS3 - they actually stay with AS1 or 2 and are happy about using the older versions.

          So it depends on what you want to do - if you want to be a programmer - choose Flex, if you want to draw and make animations - take Flash
