What is something that a normal TeX-er would use that needs Illustrator? 
just curious, since I maybe missing out on something here.

xfig works nicely under rootless X [use fink to install easily].

Also, if you have an inclination for an elegant mathematical approach 
graphics, then MetaPost is very nice. By giving only some contextual 
information, it is able to figure out the rest [using linear equations]. 
For example, you could specify the size and location of objects relative 
to each other, and specify tangent lines to a curve, etc.

Like Berndt says below, OmniGraffle is very nice. I got to play with it, 
since a fully licensed version came with the new G4's.
