Having worked with Flex long enough there are definitely times I get really annoyed when Flex does something I feel is counter intuitive or when I have to go around a pretty complicated process to do something that I feel would be trivial in Flash. But given a limited time frame for a project, I usually default to a Flex project as opposed to a pure AS3 project just since there are so many conveniences in the framework.
I am curious how the rest of the Flex community feels now that Flex has been out there for a while and the “new-and-shiny” effect has worn off. So I would like to ask, the following question: What is your favorite feature of the Flex framework. Below is a poll widget but it may be restrictive to your answer, so feel free to comment or elaborate on what you love/hate about the framework.
