in other news, water is wet, ice is cold, and objects hurled toward the sun have a tendancy to burn.

"...the report observes that the GoLive, Fireworks and FreeHand products may be sold."

Not the first time Freehand has been sold. This may actually be good for Freehand users seeing as Macromedia hasn't bothered to update Freehand much in the last few years, although it depends who picks it up. It would be great if Apple did but not likely. The only other company I can think of that might be interested is Quark!

Guess time will tell.

Illustrator BLOWS.
Yes, I am a designer. (professional! not on PC!)
Yes,.I've been trained on both platforms.
Yes, I've used both.
Yes, Illustrator is more popular.
Freehand is more intuitive; ala Macintosh.
Sad news.....
