Even though I dislike the direction Adobe has been taking Flash, I appreciate that it has so far been backward compatible...animations created in very old versions of Macromedia Flash still work in Adobe Flash.
It would be very sweet if some talented developer were able to create a decent open source program that could create the basics of Flash creation that have been supported in Flash since the early days. F4l is trying to do that, but it's a very slow process.
Unfortunately it seems that most Flash development these days has been focused on just streaming video rather than flash-based animation. The streaming video doesn't really have anything to do with what flash is best at doing, as far as I'm concerned.
