.....Perhaps what Macromedia should do is introduce the "FlashGUI" SDK, which would have a GUI-centric editor and GUI-specific APIs for quickly building the view system of an app. Even better would be if the FlashGUI library was skinnable, so that as an app developer I can focus on functionality, and independently a graphics designer could customize the look and feel of the GUI elements. Maybe this is already available, but if it is, it definitely needs better marketing... [] In my experience I wouldn't remotely recommend trying to build a desktop application with Flash MX. There's a reason all you ever see Flash used for is wizzy animations.
