    Vector Magic is very impressive. Beats Corel all to hell IMO

    you talking vector drawing or vectorizing?

    corel is quite good enough IMO (for vector drawing)

    I'm gonna jump on the Illustrator bandwagon. I've been using it for vectors since '99. I've tried Corel, etc, but never tried to make anything with them; just edit native files then export.

    I have Xara Extreme on my netbook running Linux. It really is pretty good for open source.

    I tend to favor EmbroideryStudio Level 3, but that's intergrated with CorelDraw x5 (right now, another release should be coming out soon enough though, it's about time in their cycle for a new one).

    Illustrator!!! Freehand was the absolute best at vector drawing...Photoshop converts bitmaps to vector nicely

    I like Corel but in some cases VMPro proved to be better

    I like SignLab (CadLink Technologies) very user friendly and easy to train someone on.
