Flex isn't AJAX -- it's Flash-based and uses ActionScript in the client
with several built-in remote data options (SOAP, REST, and a binary
AMF format). As long as you're OK with the Flash requirement and
the licensing scheme, though, you can do some cool stuff with it :-)

Unfortunately, there's no Flash 9 Player yet for Linux, which Flex 2.0
requires, so my experimentation is on hold until that's released...
