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]...
