Literally amazing. I attempted to learn Flash in a few days for my web-design job, and was overwhelmed by the timeline, motion, and everything else. As soon as I installed OpenLaszlo, I figured out how to use it. Anyone with XML/HTML and JavaScript-style language familiarity can pick this up in a flash (no pun intended). The open source license is especially a plus considering Flash CS3 Professional's $699 price tag. Awesome work.

Sorry, I meant to give that a 5 above... if the staff would like to change that and remove this, I'd be obliged.

You can do brilliant things with OpenLaszlo. The steepest part of the learning curve for me was building the layout without a graphical IDE. This will not be a problem for developers used to working without Dreamweaver, etc. Very sharp product

I have worked with Dojo Toolkit to give the web application we're working on a rich interface, but its time consuming and a big pain.

I think with OpenLaszlo, we will be able to build and maintain RIAs very easily and even single-handedly.

I am trying real hard to get all the missing pieces before I do a project with this.

I just hope they do add some documentation and examples for beginners, specially something on web services so that the whole picture is clear.

My only problem was installing the server. The Wiki was really bad and I had to go hunting for a good set of instructions. Other wise, it is really good.

Needs lots and lots of improvement to come anywhere near Flash. Don't get me wrong but usually graphical designers working with me don't do much coding and they are used to GUI for any creativity.
Intuitive GUI is a must. needs lots of improvement

Poor response from the olz team. Little - if any (useful) response from the olz community in their own forums. Olz is only interested in working with their paying customers (either volunteer coders or cash money). What they want from everyone else is free testing and feedback. Stick with Flex or wait a decade until olz matures into something worthwhile.

Looks neat, but the interface is not intuitive at all - there's no 'new project', 'save as' or even "open" command!
