I'm using FW CS4 on my iMac 2.8Ghz to prototype web sites and I'm really disappointed with the reaction speed of most commands.
It does most things I need to do very well just at a fraction of the speed of an app like Photoshop. When you're used to this speed it just becomes plain frustrating. I've also had unexpected crashes along the way but I can live with these as it could be anything like a rogue font and as I save every couple of seconds I never really lose too much work.
It's great to see the CS4 gloss on the surface but I feel underneath there's some first generation code slowing the whole thing up as it's only a recent addition to Adobe's software. I guess they've not been able to optimise the running code for it yet to the point where Photoshop is at.
I don't think any bug fixes for FW will improve it's speed, just stability which isn't a bad thing but I wonder if it'll make it to CS5 for a speed revamp?
The answer is YES. hehe , this is what Sarthak said in the fireworks linkedin group
