CorelDraw Suite vs Adobe

Tink!
Graphic Designers - if cost was not a worry, what would your choice be?:

CorelDraw Premium Suite v.X5 (NOT the CorelDraw Graphics Suite x6 because that one doesn't have a Flash creator)

or

Adobe Design & Web Premium?

and if cost was a concern? would you recommend the Corel Suite?

    But maybe I'm biassed as I've been using it since the days of Corel Draw 2 or 3 and have a lot of History with it.

    While I have used Adobe in it's various versions for a while I always default back to Corel Draw as I'm happier using it.

    However the lack of Flash I don't think is the Killer that it once would have been.

    that I did end up getting the Corel Draw Suite 5 AND Adobe Dreamweaver 6.

    As it turns out, the web design program in the Corel suite is absolutely bogus. You can't import existing websites into it, and you can't edit code other than the code it allows you to through its templates, thus I bought Dreamweaver.

    I am using the Flash program which actually, for being a "mini" it is excellent for what I need to do. :-)
