Adobe offers free Flex 3 license to unemployed developers
Flex Builder Pro 3 is normally $699 to purchase, so this is a pretty generous offer. Yes, Adobe have their own ulterior motives - if you become skilled with Flex, you may land a job somewhere and your employer will need to spring for a license. Who knows, it could lead to some killer new Flex app being developed, and then Adobe wins again because the platform gets a boost.
Whatever the motivation, it's still a nice gesture and could definitely provide jobless developers with a new skill that may just help them find employment again.
