dear friends:

I am looking forward to get pc software for making cartoons/2d.
If is possible, to be free or very inexpensive.
I think I heard Flash can do something like this, but never used
flash and do not know if this is true.
Please help !!!

Good links guys!

Pencil looks pretty basic, and I love it for this reason. 5 minutes after opening this program I was able to create my first animation. I'm not sure it suits into a commercial pipeline, though.

Synfig (awful name BTW) is clearly more advanced but at the same time less intuitive, After 30 minutes, I've no idea how to use it.

At our studio we use TVPaint, also known as Aura to some lwavers.
