I use OmntGraffle for 99% of all my drawing needs and I do have 
Illustrator as well. Why use OG? As pointed out it has an easier to use 
interface. Also, the automatic alignment feature is wonderful. If you 
have the need to draw bezier curves (or splices) you will find OG 
lacking. However, the developers are aware of that and we may well see 
a better curve tool added in the not to distant future.
