Now that Adobe has acquired Macromedia, expect FreeHand to disappear soon. Grap FreeHand 10 or MX and hold on to it. I can only hope Adobe incorporates some of FH's superior qualities (pen tool, multi-pages, text capabilities) into Illustrator. I personally dislike Illustrator to a high degree. FH is so intuitive to use compared to Illustrator (I am surprised Ill. ever made it to the stature it has attained). I personally do almost everything "non-pixel" based in FH. I do love Photoshop though, so I am not anti-Adobe, in case anyone was wondering.
