@Terrificli -- one of the problems with the new emergence of vector graphics is that the most popular design programs out there are based on raster graphics. Converted between vector and raster causes its own set of problems.
Still, the appeal of vector is easy to see. Ask any print publication designer who has dealt with a raster graphic that is too small (that can be a photo, drawing or anything else -- generally anything with a PNG, JPG or BMP extension). Scaling is the problem -- the image might look OK on a computer screen, but whether it will look fine when printed is a different matter entirely. You don't have that problem with vector graphics -- they can be scaled up or down as needed and still retain full resolution.
Still, the desktop publishing industry is built around raster graphics. Making the transition to incorporate vector images may be a painful and expensive process.
