Adobe said: Flex2 is for creating Ajax-style applications. OMG

I just come accross the Adobe Flex product site, when I read the overview, it said:

Adobe® Flex™ 2 is the most complete, powerful application development solution for creating and delivering cross-platform rich Internet applications (RIAs) within the enterprise and across the web. It lets enterprises create personalized, multimedia-rich, Ajax-style applications that can reach virtually anyone on any platform. Enterprises can use Flex to quickly build and deploy applications that improve the user experience, boost the bottom line, and analyze data to enable better business decisions.

When AJAX blows around the town, I always see some website said AJAX can create Flash style websites / applications. The music chair is changed, Adobe think Flash is left behind AJAX and AJAX is a target what Flash should follow ?!

If Flex2 is for AJAX-style applications, the client must ask, then why Flex2? why we not stay at AJAX? Adobe, please think another better marketing text for promoting Flex2. Thankz.

Update 2006-7-12
The site have removed AJAX wording already

  1. I saw a similar description in a press release article and I completely agree. I understand Adobe are using that because it is a buzz term and they think alot of people will instantly understand. But in terms of developing, Flex2 is nothing like coding AJAX and in terms of presentation Flex2 is nothing like AJAX!
