Finally some tools to go from FlashBuilder to InteliJ IDEA

For quite a while now I've wanted to get into IntelliJ IDEA IDE.  There are a couple of reasons for this.

  1. I find Eclipse to be a bit annoying every now and then.
  2. It seemed to me that IntelliJ IDEA really is an amazing IDE and everyone tells me so. (Even though I think it has a nasty Java UI)
I have tried downloading the IDE twice and both times had a hard time with it.  I felt that Eclipse was one culture I've gotten used to since 1999, and IntelliJ was just a whole new way of thinking that would require a tutor for me to understand.  To be honest, I've been very embarrassed about this last bit and I never quite knew how to ask anyone to help me, or even who to ask.
