The only designers I know who preferred Illustrator were those who never really learned FreeHand. It says here that FreeHand is the greatest app that ever died.
Update: I’m getting an earful from those who prefer Illustrator, including this gem from a friend: “Never was there a happier moment in software than when FreeHand bought the farm. Fucking FreeHand. It can kiss my ass.” In a nut, I think it’s safe to say that Illustrator was aptly named, insofar as it seems to be preferred by those who draw. I was just a layout guy, hence, perhaps, my strong preference for FreeHand.
