Pat...Some tools that may help you in your journey without the Eclipse-based Flex Builder:

 
Flex Compiler Shellhttp://labs.adobe.com/wiki/index.php/Flex_Compiler_Shell
 
Flex Ant Taskshttp://labs.adobe.com/wiki/index.php/Flex_Ant_Tasks

Thanks Brandon; I did try compiling the 'explorer' example at one point, and gave up because it was simply taking too long. I bet the compiler shell would have sped that up.

Hi,

 
I can't vouch for any of the following personally, but more tools being worked on for Flex:

Thanks for the info David. I'm impressed that a Senior Vice President of Adobe took the time to comment on a little blog entry! :-)

Thanks for looking at Flex. I understand how you might balk at paying $500 for FlexBuilder when you just want to play around with it, but is it really such an unreasonable amount for a professional development tool? Eclipse may be free, but IBM charges $515 for the "IBM XL C/C ++ Advanced Edition for Linux"! "IBM Rational Professional Bundle" costs $7800. Compared to IBM's prices, Adobe's seem like quite a bargain :-)

 
Anyhow, I suggest just downloading the FlexBuilder trial (free for 30 days) if you just want to play:
