They initially ran this promotion for students and teachers, now for unemployed developers. Why not just run this same promotion for non-commercial use (i.e. us developers that like to learn new things on our own time but that are still employed)? It would get further market penetration for flex builder which this is obviously intended to accomplish.

Even though I'm gainfully employed I'm not going to go out of my way to buy a $300 (last time I looked) tool to learn how to program ActionScript if it's not part of my daily job already. I'd like to learn it mostly for curiosity but then if it works out well maybe I'd push for it at work which is where Adobe would then make real money.

I suppose I could just lie on the form also but would rather just see them do a personal developer license promotion.
