Topic: Is Adobe Flash IDE really necessary?

Hello,

I've not done any Flash development at all so far, but am thinking of dipping my toes in.  Would it be possible to work with the SimpleViewer-Pro source in something like Flashdevelop, for example?  What, if any, limitations would there be with using tools other than the official Flash IDE?

Cheers,
Peter

p.s. I appreciate that I'm not allowed to post URLs as a new user, but it would be nice if I was given some kind of warning and/or ability to edit it to remove links, rather than having the message unceremoniously dumped when I hit post.  I suppose this could be more of a phpbb issue.
