Macromedia - Press Room : MACROMEDIA OFFERS NEW NON-COMMERCIAL LICENSE OPTION FOR FLEX
Typical of Macromedia, they copied much of LPS and failed to get it right. Now they try to copy our open source announcement and can't get it right.
If you look into it, you see where they want to nail you: frm the FAQ: Participants also receive 1 license of Macromedia Flex Builder, the Macromedia IDE for Flex.
But you still need to pay for additional developer tools. IF you qualify.
I also noted that they're trying to attract bloggers.
