Well, Basic was my first language on the old ZX Spectrum... some years ago :)
Then, I also used VB for Win16 then Win32, until Delphi was out then C++ Builder.
I highly prefer C/C++/Java/C# syntax and for example now I'm using .NET and C# for web dev. And C++ for non-Windows things. And I do not have any reason to buy CF ... to get what? A fancy HTML-looking syntax? :)
Some time ago, while I was still a "greenhorn" in Flash Remoting, I wanted TO SEND images from Flash to server. Then I realized it's simply not possible. The Flash Player does NOT send the MovieClip object (among many others) via AMF. As simple as that.
So I changed the strategy and I'm sending back to server the list of "changes" applied to the image, then the server does the real processing and the Flash Player is reloading the image via loadMovie.
And, btw, even if I would like "to donate" some money to MM and buy the CF server... it would be useless... it does not run on my target platform... and it will never do it ;)
