    Corel Draw vs Illustrator

    Here in the US AI is dominant, but I see that other parts of the world Corel is pretty common. I personally am I a big fan of Corel Draw, but it seems like the PDF output in Corel color changes, and AI seems to produce much more richer colors. Any input on this matter?

    I've worked in the screen printing industry and it seems to be dominated by Corel Draw. I can't stand it but it's a preference thing as I'm used to all the Adobe products. In the end it's about what your comfortable using.

    Specifically in regards to screen printing, can you pls give a quick explanation why Corel Draw dominates over AI?

    I have access to both and chose to focus more on the Adobe programs, but since I do many screen print designs, I'm wondering if I should spend some more time in Draw if it might be more beneficial to me at some point in the future.

    I can't stand corel, but I think that is due to the fact that our large format printing company uses eps as our standard printing files. Every time I get a file from a corel customer and it has a gradient I want to cry. It fades with separate blocks (steps) of color instead of just fading from one color and ending at another.

    Here in México AI is the standard too, only the old printing bussiness uses Corel Draw. I personally prefer Adobe suite because i work with Indesing, Photoshop and Illustrator at the same time and the integration is pretty useful, but, i dont have any experience working with Corel so i dont have any right to criticize it.
