Why would you say Adobe are open sourcing Flex? because they don't see the
product going anywhere and they are cutting their losses? Because they are
big enough and can loose on this one? Or because they figure they can only
really make money off a development tool and platform (in the future) if it
has serious open source credentials and they are reorganising their business
bit by bit around ways of seeling tools and services around such a strategy?
But aside from being free/gratis, are there other specific benefits

It is nothing to do with the cost - at least for me. I want to be able to
recommend the platform to customers and I want to be able to engage bright
young developers in learning the language and RunRev tools / IDE. Both are
much much harder in my environment with a pure closed source solution - and
it is getting harder.
