May 2012, Adobe Illustrator CS6
Version 16.x of the professional vector graphics program by Adobe Systems.
I tested most of the basic tools like selection, text, brushes, colors and transformations
What does not
The icons were rendered incorrectly in the UI. I'd bet theres a fix but i haven't looked that far into it yet. Also you cannot get the illustrator updates that would normally be available on windows.
I installed from the adobe CS6 cd using a serial key. I was able to install photoshop, indesign, illustrator, bridge, and fireworks with most things working out of the box. Adobe acrobat pro failed to install.
Use winetricks in gui mode and install:
winetricks atmlib corefonts gdiplus msxml3 msxml4 msxml6 vcrun2005 vcrun2008 vcrun2010 d3dx9 flash. Make sure to do the msxml and vcrun in order.
I was having issues with winetricks command line mode where it wouldn't install msxml3 and vcrun2008 correctly on a 64bit wineprefix.
What was not tested
I didn't test the photoshop filters, or bitmap rasternization tools. I mainly tested the tools that the typical SVG uses more people would care about when using illustrator.
I also did not test any of the advanced color profile or printing features.
Its really a between silver or gold rating. Its not "better than on windows", but considering I was able to install it from a cd with most of the other adobe software working as well right out of the box it deserves a gold rating.
With some trinkering from someone who knows wine better than I do it could easily achieve a gold to platinum rating.
