I'm just wondering if anybody has got any experience in integrating Flex
or OpenLaszlo with Rails and which people prefer.
I've seen some of the tutorials but am pondering which one, if any, I
should turn to:

If you are talking about Flex2, which is the one with the great demos
and
the free IDE + SDK, than you should consider that it is just for
Flashplayer
8.5, which is still in beta, while Lazslo stuff runs on any
flashplayer.

They are both somehow similar to RHTML-templating: Code is embedded
inside
XML files

I did some tests with Flex and Laszlo (nothing to fancy) and I've seen
that Flex is almost twice as fast as Laszlo.

I've worked with Flex2 and the latest Laszlo release talking to rails
over
XML-RPC and SOAP.

Flex2 seems to be more polished, with better interface components.
Laszlo has less polished components, but they are much easier to extend.

Just my 2 cents ;)
