In my multimedia class I am teaching my students AS1 and AS3. I give the students examples of each. Now, what I found is that 20 of my 20 students are doing their final projects using AS1. Even the ones with programming experience. What does this tell me? Nothing that I dont already think. Adobe needs to continue to support AS1 because a lot of people prefer it. Plus those with limited programming experience can be more successful with flash. IMO, AS3 is only more powerful for larger projects, but not small projects.
