I think that Scala will be a little bit expensive (but maybe I'm
wrong), Flash files I can make for free using my own Rebol's dialect:-)

I'm not such a FlashMX fun (I still rather do code compatible with
Flash5 but I've already explored some of the new features as well:

I was using Flash5 with Netscape under RedHat6.1 few months ago and on my old PC on
233Mhz it was faster than under M$ WinNT (in my opinion the fastest M$
