I had decided to try Adobe Illustrator for a week 'cause I wasn't satisfied with CorelDRAW 10 being extremely flaky. (BTW I've been a CorelDRAW user since 1993.)
I didn't like the test drive at all. It felt too “foreign” for me.
Then, a couple of hours ago, I downloaded, installed and test-drove the new CorelDRAW X3 (full, 15-day trial version; can also print and save).
… And as of right now, I'm a proud user of CorelDRAW X3. No more nasty crashes every 20 minutes (or shorter if I do a lot of complex editing), this beast is rock-solid. ♥
Plus, as of the first week of February, I shall become a proud registered user of CorelDRAW X3—after skipping two major versions, 11 and 12, I finally ordered one. Got an upgrade discount too, since I have a previous version. ♥
