Thanks to Chris Cantrell’s blog I learned this morning that Macromedia is giving free FLEX licenses to non-profits, students, teachers, and anyone else who will use FLEX in a non-commercial environment.

Not only do you get a free FLEX license but you also get a free license for the Macromedia Flex Builder which is the Macromedia IDE for Flex.

Check out the FLEX FAQ for more details

Not too shabby! Now if we can just convince Macromedia to give free licenses for older versions of ColdFusion to anyone (including those profit welding businesses) we’d be set.
