Ah yes, Flash. Interpreted languages are not really my thing.

You also have Flex, which can be combined with for example Flixel
There's Python, a popular interpreted language, for which the engine most used is PyGame
I'm sure Ruby also has options if you look for them.

GRAHhhh!! Darn Canadians stole the gold medal, in Hockey! Great game, though. Kinda funny how the American goalie just stood there like a statue a split second after the gamewinning OT shot was made; guy knew he was done for...

I decided to buy a new graphic tablet. But before doing that, I want to know if there is a difference
between a no name and a wacom product. Currently have a aiptek A5 size btw.
In the last years I made quit a few attempts to get into digital painting, but it always ends in frustration as I find it very awkward and it doesn´t feel natural at all. Which leads me to two possibilities.
I´m not a person who goes well with tablets or my current setup is a POS.
-
So yeah, if some people here have experience with different kinds of tablets I want to know if an expensive wacom is worth the money.

I don't have any experience outside of Wacom, but if you make a living off of illustration/ artistic digital work of any sort- saving up and buying a nice cintiq would be the ideal. We have them in the computer labs here at school. They are just a delight to work with. I felt like I was cheating on my lover- traditional painting putting my stylus all over the cintiq screen...

I like Bamboo, I like Intuos too. Both Wacom. Used Intuos for work - great feel in them hands, delightful overall, good customization capabilities too, if you're into that - I'm not. I suck at messing with my workflow, hehu O:

But really, what can I say aside from that they both feel swell to work with and pretty accurate too - compared to my previous horrible experiences with the graphire I must say I dig the current Wacom tablets!

Well, I have a no-name brand. On the rare occasion I try using it, my workflow proceeds like this: draw a line, undo, draw a line, undo, draw a line, undo, etc.

But like you Vierbit I'm not sure if it's the tablet, or if I'm not so good with tablets. To be honest, I've practiced with it very little.

I've got a Wacom Bamboo Fun, and it's pretty good.  I've tried other brands (Genius, Vistablet, Lenovo, etc.) and none really stand out as better or worse.  Obviously you wouldn't by some 2003 piece of junk off of Craigslist, but you don't really have to go all out and buy a $300 Cintiq unless you're sure you'd need it.
