Topic: Illustrator/Photoshop Replacement

I am SO over Adobe. I am just about to upgrade my Adobe software to CS4 out of frustration - CS2 is so slow on my Intel Mac that I am _this close_ to throwing my computer out the window. I keep telling me that it's not my computer's fault.

I've been using Pixelmator (http://www.pixelmator.com/) for a while and love it. It's ALMOST a full Photoshop replacement. And they're moving fast, so I'm happy with it.

But I haven't found a replacement for Illustrator yet.

Can anyone suggest an Illustrator replacement for the Mac?

I take it you've already got inkscape?!  I know it's not as powerful as Illustrator, but it tends to do most of what I need...

And I agree about Pixelmator - love it!  It took me a while to get used to the 'pressure' wand/bucket, etc. instead of a tolerance slider, but it's actually easier to use with a tablet!

I've also even used keynote for some really basic layout stuff...

I haven't tried it but there's: http://www.eazydraw.com/

Yeah, Inkscape is nice. I don't really like having to launch X11 to make it work, but I'm giving it a whirl.

Never really used illustrator, but I do like Vector Designer a lot. I also use pixelmater, which is awesome!
