For what its worth I use Flash - there's a few reasons but the main one
is Flash's ubiquity on the web which makes it an essential tool in the
multimedia developers toolkit.
You asked about some good Director resources - in the past I have found
both of these useful...

Hi guys, What exactly is asked of the students in the Exam at the end of
the year. I personally think Lingo is out dated and I agree with Marian
that Director is old fashioned. It still has its place and Lingo is
probably a lot simpler than AS, but Flash does win the fight hands down.

I'm not a huge fan and I guess java could be covered in a IT cert or
something, but I myself have never touched on Java. I've found
ACTIONSCRIPT.org and FLASH KIT a great resource for Flash AS. Is there
one out there for Lingo anymore ? or how about Java ?


PS. A while ago I was talking to someone about a Job and they told me
that Director Lingo was a "must". Oh well....
