The upgrade pricing is better than I thought it was going to be :D

I don't know yet. I bought CS and updated to CS2 and now i have to update again!!!
What are the better things in Dreamweaver CS3! Is it just because it's adobe now? And yes i would love to work with Fireworks again but i make my own buttons now with Photoshop and Image Ready. Flash still doesn't appeal to me.
If i buy a suite kind it still has a lot of programs i don't use, simple because i got other programs to do it for me.
I still need a lot of thinking to do....

Any ideas whats new in Dreamweaver CS3? I've Dreamweaver 8 Professional Educational and in fact the entire 8 Professional Suite (which includes Flash 8, Freehand 8, Fireworks 8) which was bundled with my Acer laptop.
What will be the most important difference between Dreamweaver CS3 and Dreamweaver 8? Anyone with any ideas? I care only about Dreamweaver, not so much of Flash(I think its AS3 in Flash CS3?)
Edit: I think the validation check for CSS will be a real baby to use and the complete CSS support will be really cool.
The drive to upgrade if I can, for my educational version, would be... Cross Platform support and the complete CSS support.
From a recent project, I find that Dreamweaver's design view seems to emulate the possible view of IE, instead of standards compliant browsers like Firefox and Opera. Especially when Tables are used, IE's Tables behaviours differ from FF and Opera and Dreamweaver emulates that of IE, which doesn't make my life any easier when tables were implemented for some heavy content page in my recent project. For those with IE and Firefox, you can see what I mean by going to this site : http://www.nanyangjc.org/~lep/honourroll.htm
You will notice a big empty space after the last content from the bottom in IE and in FF/Opera, the space left is pretty nothing much.
I'm not quite understanding the part on the integration between Photoshop Files and Dreamweaver though, at least from what I'm seeing in the video.
Oh and the FLV support! That would be real cool. Now I'm tempted for Dreamweaver CS3 upgrade. Gonna think and wait for any upgrade prices.
Still very comfortable with Photoshop CS2, not sure if I'm in or gonna do any upgrade to CS3. CS2 does what I need and satisfies me enough.
I see that some programs got ousted with this info, well and kind of shocking to me was the oust of Freehand. GoLive disappearing wasn't a surprise. I know that a fair amount of graphic/DTP/Layout people uses Freehand. So now, I guess InDesign is the standard to stick with. I'm glad I made the decision to spend time to self learn InDesign back then instead of Freehand which never seems to agree with me.
So now the question, who's upgrading?

Looks like its the Adobe Creative Suite 3 Design Premium $599 + Fireworks $149 for me. Upgrade from my existing CS2 (2.0) Premium Suite to CS3 Premium.
Why is is more money to upgrade form (2.0) then (2.3)

I think I'll have to add a paypal button to my site because I have no money for upgrades.

As a former user of LiveMotion after I read the piece on John Nack's blog about Photoshop CS3's integration with Flash (http://blogs.adobe.com/jnack/images/ps_into_flash.jpg) I guess it's time to learn it. Where is a good place to start? Books, video, etc.?
