How long have your been using Adobe software? (year or version)

Since Adobe Illustrator 10 studying multimedia at Diablo Valley College in Pleasant Hill.

Which is your software of choice (your favorite or the one you use most, etc)

Usually import AutoCAD .dwg vector drawings into Illustrator except fonts. Fonts edit way better in Illustrator. Color is also better.

Don't really know any experts.

I use Manga Studio for my cartoons, now over 200 comic strips. Similar to Adobe Illustrator, but more for lineart and cartoons.
