I've used both - I'm not experienced by any means in either. I stick to PS. (and sometimes Paint Shop Pro)

They are different types of programs. Photoshop is a bitmap editor. A bitmap image is a jpeg, tiff, PNG, BMP, or GIF (there are others...) that gets blurrier as you enlarge it. Fireworks is a vector image editor. Vector images are actually mathematical equations that remain sharp when enlarged. Vectors are good for logos since they can be enlarged as large as you want it to be and it will still be sharp. If you are making logos and web graphics, use Fireworks. If you are editing images, use Photoshop.

Adobe has purchased Macromedia, the author of Fireworks.
Chances are that Fireworks will disappear in time or that it's functions will be incorporated in other adobe products such as photoshop or illustrator.

Not likely as, in CS3, PS has lost functions (Imageready) that are to be taken over by Fireworks.
