In FM 6, yup, a lot of disadvantages; somewhat fewer in later versions. 
See http://www.microtype.com/FM_bugs.html
for the full story.

If you install Setprint from Sundorne
http://www.sundorne.com/FrameMaker/Freeware/setPrint.htm
you can set up Distiller (or Adobe PDF or whatever your version of it is 
called) as the default printer within FM, while leaving your regular h/w 
printer as the default in other applications. Then you can simply print 
your FM docs to PDF.
