I think Will was talking about a piece of software called "EAZY DRAW",
that someone mentioned as being sufficient for their own needs.

If I understood correctly, Will's "quick pass" listed things that
he currently does do in Illustrator, but that E-D cannot do ...

  ... and with a name like that it's hardly surprising it's not
good enough for the needs of a professional graphic artist.

Hope his helps,
