I have illustrator 7 on one pc, and I think 10 on the mac...
I actually hear you about the Rotrings!! I went to school for graphic design and graduated in 1986, RIGHT BEFORE the computer took over! I still have a tube of rubylyth and amberlyth! not to mention like 50 x-actos!! I was never into technical drawing, all though, since the development of cad and others, It has intrigued me!
