One of the best things about Flash Professional (CS4 and those before it) is that you can open it up and immediately start coding with minimal syntactical overhead (class definitions, imports) to get results simply and easily. One of the worst things about it is the code editor's lack of maturity and inability to help you work with your custom APIs through code hints and auto-completion. That will change with Viper, the code name for the next version of Flash (CS5). flashmagazine has more with their coverage of FOTB09.
