Adobe releases Flex 2 beta

Adobe FlexAdobe has released a beta version of Flex 2.0, its "complete solution for building cross-platform Rich Internet Applications within the enterprise and across the web." What the heck does that mean? Basically it's a development environment for creating Flash apps. While I'm rather skeptical of the idea of creating enterprise apps that run in Flash Player (yes, that Flash Player), I admit that Flex does look pretty cool. The IDE is based on open source gargantuan Eclipse and has built-in frameworks for rapid development. According to CNet, Adobe plans to "un-bundle" Flex and offer its components for lower prices, including a basic kit that will be available for free.
