I haven't been using it for 20 years but CorelDRAW is an old friend. The first version I saw was CorelDRAW 3 (1992), the first I owned was CorelDRAW 4 (1993) and since then I've updated every few releases, currently on CorelDRAW 12.
For me it's still the best value Vector/Bitmap Graphics Suite around. I must admit that price was a very definite factor when I originally chose Corel, over Adobe. At the time CorelDRAW (the vector app) left Pagemaker/Illustrator for dead when it came to document editing and Photopaint was there in the box for free. I have no idea how that comparison would run today but my 20 year old graphics tool-box has served me well.
It's done everything from the most mundane image touch-up, simple combination vector/bitmap graphics (like my blog headers) to multiple page graphically intense publications (like the yacht sponsor proposal above right). The Corel Suite has been there with a range of tools which get the job out the door, or on to the web, and an array of file import/export filters to deal with a huge variety of types!
Thanks Corel, I look forward to the next 20 years!
