I'm starting to work with partial page updates and I'm looking at both Adobe
Flex and AJAX.

Any comments or advice on which of them is generally better?

The general impression I am getting is that Flex is easier than AJAX and has
additional possibilities but the downside is that you are tying yourself
into a proprietary technology, some many of the additional features are tied
into Flash which may have search engine implications.

I'm discounting MS Silverlight at the moment, perhaps I'm wrong to do that
as most of my websites are developed and hosted using MS software (Visual
Studio and W008).
