Adobe Illustrator CS3

I just got my upgrade of the web suite from the formerly Macromedia products.

Oh my God!
Illustrator industry standard!!!!! ?????????It has about what I would consider to be 30% of Corel’s Vector capabilities and powers.
No bitmap support to mention.
Nothing even close to the shaping tools...

I am going to make a diligent review of this supposed industry vector standard as I am tired of listing to the BS about this Adobe Application.
I will try to be unbiased but coming out of the box I do not see how you can even compare illustrator with Corel’s usability and features.

Stand by this is going to get interesting I am sure...

My initial thought - No wonder these illustrator users need $500 plus just to make a simple logo.

Advanced Artist VS Adobe Illustrator.. Just bring it on!
