photoshop, the gimp, fireworks, freehand should all be good for designing a logo i would suggest photoshop but if you dont want to pay you can get the-gimp which is free photoshop minus a few features.
Depends on what your logo is going on.....letterhead, business cards? That's fine with photoshop, but when you want to do a big sign........freehand (preferred by me), or illustrator, cause no matter how big you blow it up, it will not distort. I create all my logos in freehand just in case anyone comes back and wants a sign done. That way I don't have no double work on my end, cause it's already done and ready to go!
