Default free flash alternatives?

Im making a list of free alternatives for software applications, I work in education and we cant give out software to students. Open office is ok but for things like adobe products such as flash is there any alternatives free or cheap?

Are you trying to produce flash or jsut view it? The applications to view are free. But to produce that is a different story.

Open Source Flash Projects Open Source Flash

That might be of help.

when I used Linux there was a group working on a project called gnash, a gnu alternative to flash. Last I checked (which has been a while) it wasn't anywhere near flash 9. I also don't know if you can use it with windows.

Gnash - GNU Project - Free Software Foundation (FSF)

try - Portable software for USB drives | Your Digital Life, Anywhereâ„¢ for a bunch of flash drive apps.
Torvalds was contemptuous of Microsoft's claims and has asked Redmond to name the patent infringements so that their veracity can be challenged and workarounds found.
"Naming them would either make it clear that Linux is not infringing at all (which is quite possible, especially if the patents are bad), or would make it possible to avoid infringing by coding around whatever silly thing they claim,"

"So the whole 'We have a list and we're not telling you' should tell you something. Don't you think that if Microsoft actually had some really foolproof patent, they'd just tell us and go, 'nyaah, nyaah, nyaah!'?"

whole story here:

Cheers guys, but It doesn't seem like there is free flash creators never mind I`ll just have to tell students to buy the software.
