Buy FB4 or wait for Burrito?

I'm wondering whether I should bite the bullet and buy FlashBuilder 4 when my trial runs out, or if it is better to wait for an official release of Burrito. Although I haven't seen a date for when that might be, or what the upgrade price would be from FB4 to Burrito. Any thoughts?

Re: Buy FB4 or wait for Burrito?

If FB is making you more productive and you're trying to get an application submitted to App World by January, I would get it.  Since there are no date announcements for Burrito, it may be more helpful to go going with FB4 and upgrade later.

Re: Buy FB4 or wait for Burrito?

the crummy part of this whole ordeal is you are going to have to pay for the upgrade from 4.0 to 4.5. so if you buy the current release you are going to have to fork out more money getting the update. So its a matter of financial needs. sorry i cant help you out with this. kinda makes me Smiley Sad but i agree with jtegen, there is no release date so you dont know how long your gonna hafta wait. good luck though on w/e decision you take.

Re: Buy FB4 or wait for Burrito?

Thanks for the responses. I really do like using FB4, but having to pay twice makes it not quite as profitable to develop apps.

 

I guess, what am I missing out on by not using Burrito? It seems like Hero will only be available on Burrito, and not FB4? I guess I need to research and see what is in that SDK to see if I will be missing out on a lot of functionality. I would be interested in hearing other opinions on the SDK issue.

Re: Buy FB4 or wait for Burrito?

I did ask question similar to this in the webcast yesterday. So my trial of burrito runs out in 14 days and i wonder what i'm going to do. If i buy FB4 now, will this extend the trial of FB4 Burrito? Would be great if Adobe and RIM could give out some Trial extending keys or something so we can all youse the mobile projects optimized Burrito build of FB4. Kind a sucks having to switch over to FlashDevelop or something else  in the middle of your project...
