    Most people who use Illustrator that I know did not buy CS2, and I didn't buy it either. It's a dog of an upgrade. We're all waiting for CS3. Adobe is really looking bad now... I've even used "Expression3 X" occasionally for vector art... it ain't bad for natural looking brush strokes. Nice '50s styling.

    Interesting, though unusual, viewpoint.

    We wouldn't even use a new version for work until it was around for a couple of months on our machines, and checked out. And I beta test it!

    I think Fireworks has much room for improvement (or it's just me being unable to find the proper functions).



    Take gradients as an example: When configuring it, you see the gradient with sliders above and underneath it, but there is a button that opens a popup with exactly the same controlls.



    I could not find another way to make a vertical linear gradient but to rotate the canvas by 90 degress and apply the horizontal one. And I am unable to move the center of a radial gradient.



    How mature is Illustrator's feature set?

    Screw photoshop, where is my illustrator with web-friendly functionality? Merge in some fireworks and I'm the happiest camper.

    Illustrator handles gradients quite different, but very well I would say. Except for fading to transparency, which is a hassle.

    Like the Current version of PS doesn't do that already!

    I'm not an illustrator, so I don't quite know what to make of this.



    However, it's new, built in Cocoa and available now.

    As for a Photoshop competitor, I don't know what this timing means for Greg's secret challenger.



    If they could release something by MWSF - even if it's not full featured, they might pick up some marketshare.

    PS is one of the more reliable programs out there. But, saving your work is always required on a regular basic. Every time you complete some process, you should save.

    I've heard mention of it, but have never seen it. For $79 bucks, it's worth a try. I'll think about it, and maybe get it tomorrow.

    Adobe is like a pregnant horse waiting to give birth to it's offspring. It just needs someone to give it an enema.

    And, just how would that work?

    Breaking the water works better.

    And, While I haven't gotten my beta from Adobe yet, I'm expecting it to arrive before the end of the year (this year, that is).



    The release usually comes out between 4 and 6 months after I get my first beta.

    Will you be able to tell us what you think of it or will you be restricted by a NDA?

    There are some things that can be said. But most others have to be kept under wraps.



    The good thing about Adobe, is that unlike Apple, they give more info as time goes on. They gave away a number of features at the PS Expo. There are a few things that they always threaten us with death about.



    But, they listen to their beta testers when it comes to features and usability. That's because most of the testers are pro's in the field, and that's their market.
