This sounds like a pretty closed-minded attitude to me - I bet Nick's
employer would have had much slimmer pickings when hiring if they'd
insisted their designer had to be proficient in Fireworks. I could see
if you were talking about Java vs classic ASP or something along those
lines, but Photoshop and Fireworks are similar enough that someone who
is comfortable with Photoshop probably wouldn't have any trouble getting
on to Fireworks - the basic tools of image editing are still the same.
In fact, a lot of designers would welcome the chance to learn something new.
