Default Adobe Illustrator CS2

I've never been able to warm up to Illustrator. But after reading the review at designer-info.com, I think I'll be giving it another chance. It seems that the interface is improved with a context-sensitive Control Palette, that allows you to set up properties without multiple trips to menus. Also interesting is the new Live Trace feature, which has the full power of Streamline and keeps a live link back to the source bitmap. As someone who is always trying to develop appealing ways to simplify bitmaps, this one pulls at my curiosity. So I went and checked on the price for Illustrator CS2, and guess what? Adobe is offering a competitive discount for Draw users.
