Now, if I were primarily a web designer, then I would go with Macromedia. More specifically, I would go and buy Macromedia Studio MX and use Fireworks instead of Photoshop just because it would be cheaper (I think) than buying Adobe Photoshop, Macromedia Dreamweaver and Macromedia Flash MX. Also, I would think (and I have heard from some) that Macromedia MX applications has good integration with each other.
In summation, here is MY humble opinion: If you are primarily a graphics designer (i.e. logo designer, banner designer, layout designer, etc.), Adobe would be your company because of Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, and Adobe In-Design.
If you were primarily a web designer, or Flash animations designer then Macromedia would be right for you, because of Macromedia Flash and Macromedia Dreamweaver.
JTWedding is right, it's like comparing apples and oranges because we all specialize in different things. I think a more relevant question would be: given the same type of application (i.e. Illustrator vs. Freehand, Fireworks vs. Photoshop, Frontpage vs. Dreamweaver) -- what would people prefer?
