I hope this is the right place to put this.

Okay so I've been using Adobe for so long that I can't remember. This weekend, I was hanging with an old friend who's also into illustration but more western comics than manga. I asked to see what she was working on and she turns on her Mac & instead of PS6.6 there's Manga Studio 5!
I was starting to become a bit elitist until I saw the work she'd been producing. Then she let me play around with it and I dunno...it's pretty cool...dare I say easier the "program hopping" I have t o do in PS & AI? Now I'm thinking of getting the basic version. I was jut wondering what yous guys thought about both programs.
