What is it that you don't like about flash?
I like the eye candy, but it sucks up A LOT of CPU. Though most of my usage
of it is with sites like www.Grooveshark.com and www.Pandora.com where it is
continually decoding a music stream. But it never fails to end up consuming
about 500MB of memory if left running an entire day.
One of the things I would eventually like to do is develop a thin client
flex/flash veneer that knows how to render a stream from the server to
display a UI and then send user actions back up to the server. This
approach would mean you wouldn't need to download multiple large swf files
but instead would download a "player". I like to think of it as being very
similar to 5250, except a GUI version.

never used but I do hear good things about it. I would image it would
