To be fair, perhaps the developers involved were already more familiar
with the .NET system (langauges, tools, libraries, etc.) than with the
Flash system, and already had the domain knowledge from building the
app before.  If that were the case, you'd have to subtract the
learning curve of the Flash system (or part of it anyway) unless
you're selling the quick dev time based on pre-familiarity with .NET
and ignorance of Flash.

Or maybe it really is that much easier.  It's hard to say from the
brief summary you gave.
