    I knew it was coming and had read the tips for freehand to illustrator migration document. But today was the first day I read this on Adobe's site:

    No updates to FreeHand have been made for more than four years, and Adobe has no plans to initiate development to add new features or to support Intel® based Macs or Microsoft® Windows Vista™ operating systems.

    To support customer workflows, we will continue to sell FreeHand and offer technical and customer support in accordance with our policies.

    While we know that FreeHand has a loyal customer base, we encourage users to migrate to new Adobe Illustrator® CS3 software, which supports both PowerPC® and Intel based Macs, Windows® XP, and Windows Vista.

    Very sad. :(

    It might be sad but it's been on the cards for a long time... people clinging onto doomed software in a production environment is harming our setup and some people's careers. Therefore, I don't miss it.

    Gotta roll with the times as best as you can; there's always someone hungrier than you, fresher than you, coming out of college with a new bag of tricks.

    Where are all the hot metal typesetters these days?
