Please post links to screenshots and/or insights of this vector graphics application. We must learn from strengths and mistakes of others.

Adobe Illustrator is one of the most commercially successful vector graphics applications among artists and graphic designers, with MacromediaFreehand as the main competitor and probably CorelDraw coming in a third place. (Adobe has since bought Macromedia and it will be interesting to see which Macromedia products will survive.) However, the relative strength of various vector editors depends on the market; for example in Russia and some other markets in Europe, CorelDraw is more common than Illustrator.
