Drawing Tablets

hey sharenators!! i recently bought a drawing tablet for my digital media course and am wondering if any of you know of any good drawing programs similar to photoshop,flash and illustrator with vector and pixel based graphics..as the adobe software is just a little too pricey for me atm and can only use it when i have classes 🙁 hopefully sharenator will become a place where i can share my digital art and get feedback and advice 😛

this is my drawing tablet its a Wacom Bamboo and its freaking awesome
