Try and figure this out, 13 web development programs in the Adobe Web Bundle! Where is this going? Seems a mess to me.

[adobe.com...]

It's funny - I was only just looking at this very thing yesterday. I've got Dreamweaver 4 Fireworks 4 Studio, and I was having a look at their upgrade offers.
The offer for me was $199 I think and that got me latest Dreamweaver - but the next jump was $799 upgrade to complete Studio with most of the crap I don't want (I just want Fireworks and Dreamweaver) and for that, I'm expected to 'pony up' $799 as an upgrade? Waaaay too much for me thanks.

Does this signal the end for FReehand? It's omission is indicative of the move to ween people over to Illi. Not that I mind - but that Punch tool... so much handier than merge.

Totally agree limbo. Man I don't like this whole deal with the buyout. We're going back to the days when only Illustrator and PhotoShop were the deal. The tools available from Macromedia and even Corel Corp put the long standing industry leader to shame back then and even now. Darn, the competition was good for us designers.

Back then Freehand buzzed circles around Illustrator, and Illustrator still didn't improve to match or outdo them, they rested on their stock price and industry standard Postscript to rape us for upgrades with a retrograde tool set.

This buy out thingy is not good for me or the industry IMHO.

I'd honestly like to hear the other side of this story, if there is one. How is this good for designers, developers or the industry in general? Perhaps I'm wrong on the whole issue...

It's not good - but having the choice was. There are strengths that both applications offered and I doubt if future releases of Illi will pick up on the slight but benificial differences that Freehand offered.

You want to vote? - I bet the split would be pretty equal ;)

This thread has got me thinking [webmasterworld.com]...
