    Corel Draw on many positions is in the lead, advancing competitors from Adobe. In Europe it became long ago the standard. In America Adobe positions are strong.

    I avoid Corel Draw as much as I can. It's non standard and, thankfully, it's being less used as time goes by.

    I was a big fan of Freehand and now basically use Illustrator.

    I long worked in printing house and advertizing agencies. More than 90% of works which to us brought, were made in Corel Draw. With them it was much simpler to work than with the huge and slow Illistrator files. As I own both programs and I am able to work in them, I can objectively tell that for those who is able to work with it, Corel is much more convenient. Besides, its files have much the smaller size.

    Totally agree. It's not a standard in any case, just happened so that in the beginning designers often start working using CD.
    Speaking of myself, for about 5 years I was CorelDraw user, and I have to say a long period it was in many cases better than Illustrator then. But Illustrator got better and better and I moved to it. Today I wouldn't change it back)))

    I used corel from ver. 8 until ver. 13, and there where many tries in that time to work with illustrator but being used with the corel tools never got the hang of illustrator. when i changed from windows to mac, i was forced to make the transition to illustrator because the last version of corel for mac was ver. 11, which was so bad from my point of view even on windows. now i have the same amount of years working with illustrator and i can say that both programs are best in their own way, but developers of plugins seem more interested in the adobe suite (i don't know if corel allows plugins) and with the Astute plugins, illustrator is becoming a more powerful tool in working with vectors. the only problem that should be solved from adobe part is the possibility to save and open cdr files, this option being available in the new corels, and with that both can share the podium of standard.

    But, can't you send the files in pdf? Here in Brazil, almost all printing shops uses PDF as the standard to receive files.

    OSX doesn't run corel. I think it's mostly cheaper because it's easier to work with, and quite straightforward. I'm still learning to use illustrator. I learnt to use coreldraw in 3 days.

    Corel does not allow plugins. And I dont think Adobe wants to share anything.

    The problem with corel is that sometimes the effects that you make on the job do not show on the final printed piece (when you are making an art that later will be printed on a print shop). With Illustrator the chance for that happen is really low.

    Corel can do it all... it saves me a great deal of time when designing.

    I still love my Photoshop and even use Illustrator for certain file conversions.
    But cannot live without my CorelDraw.

    I think those who say it's a crapy program... haven't tried it long enough.

    I still use illustrator from time to time... but for speed and performance corel win hands down.
    I agree; I'm an adobe guy myself; but I've used corel some and definitely have seen it's benefits in certain areas. I was actually really surprised with everything it can do. (I come from a back ground in screen printing and signs) You'll see small 'cheaper' shops who only use adobe as well as you will find small 'cheap' shops using corel. I really think it's the same as any other debate: PC vs MAC, Ford vs Chevy, etc.

    CD vs Ai
    debate will never end even after judgement day. just convert your file into EPS or pdf files for printing (i mean not PDF for web), its industry standard and if they still can not accept it that shop is certainly not worth your time to visit.

    It is a standard problem at many. Unfortunately, even good designers often aren't able to make the correct settings. But it not Corel Draw problem, is a problem of qualification of the user.

    But can learn Illustrator also in 3 days. I don't see a difference there between the packages.
    It only boils down to price for me. Corel is more affordable.
