    This has good and bad news

    Good: For flash animators, this could mean no more switching between programs to get the desired effects, it could all be intergrated into one program

    Bad: The price will almost definately increase (and neither program is exactly cheap...for people who actually buy it )

    LOL, we can also expect the next version of DW to take ten minutes to load all of it's plugins when you run it.

    No shit...

    Not DW but Photoshop CS takes almost 2 whole minutes to load right now. So many plug ins and about 5000 fonts.

    So it's your own fault Photoshop is slow to start up.

    Archive the fonts you dont need, and uninstall all those unused plugins.
    It's not like you use all of them everytime you use Photoshop, so get rid of 'em.

    No, I don't use ALL of them EVERYTIME, but I do use them all on a frequent basis.

    As for the fonts, the last thing I have time for is to go through 5000 fonts and pick n choose ones that I like and don't.

    I just start up PS and go get something to drink or something. It's not that big of a deal. It's just frustrating sometimes when I'm in a rush.
