Hi Karl -- I have been using the original Adobe product (I have an
older version of the workshop) for years and love it, love it, love
it!! I mostly use it for editing and working with drawings that I
have already made by hand and it is just so easy is ridiculous!! I
haven't upgraded because I can still use what I have, even tho I now
have an XP machine, but if what is on the market is anything like
their original product, then it's worth the investment. Write to me
offline if you want more specifics.
