If you really want to get into AS3, there are good tutorials. I think people (including myself) have been reluctant to get into AS3 because of the radical change between versions. Some simple and common tasks in AS2 were changed or more difficult. However AS3 is the future, and works with Flex (a good thing to be aware of) and is object oriented programming, while AS 1&2 are not.
