I'm not sure there are any content creation tools for SWF on Linux. Six
months ago I was a bit worried about that...

Having just come back from WWW9 I'm pretty enthusiastic about SVG
right now. I can't see the point in continuing to use Flash once there
are vendors clambering over each other to produce the best SVG plug-in
and (since it's free) it will be built-in on Mozilla eventually.

If there's no Flash creation tools at all for Linux, and there are
already some steps towards SVG (though not AFAIK animation) it seems
like it would be better to just create SVG from go -- but that's maybe
not what you want to hear when you're about to do a Flash course.
