Being a retired person with little money to burn but a lot of desire to have usable tools at my disposal, what are good alternatives to the Fireworks 5 and all of the pieces that make up CS5 Web premium, such as Dreamweaver, Flash products, Photoshop, etc?
I found Coffee Cup woefully lacking even in interoperability of their products. I had a Macromedia MX Studio many years ago and found it to be at least usable, but lost the box on a move and now have no way to upgrade... so, I have to bypass Adobe products.
Any ideas? What alternatives do people here use?
