Photoshop is the best software to design any website or logos. I know when i have started my career in designing, at that time i was learning it and still now after invention of many photo softwares, still i am using that software only.

cant remember the last time i used photoshop to "design" a webpage. I actually find that process a bit of double handling. I just need a rough hand drawn sketch, a colour palette, choose my typography and straight into the coding. no need to make a pretty looking picture in photoshop, that i'll never use anyway!!!

I am started designing in GIMP. But for doing advanced works PHOTOSHOP is essential.
I am using Photoshop CS3 now. Its really great.

Why? I haven't found a good reason to buy the "latest and greatest" version of Photoshop since V8 (CS1).

And for laying out website templates, Inkscape is by far and away the best tool to use

I didn't use Inkscape. I am doing all my work in Photoshop. Thats why I love Photoshop. The latest versions of Photoshop have some powerful tools to make your work easier.

I'm always curious as to why people use a digital image editor (bitmap/raster tool) when a vector editor would be the much more appropriate tool.

Twelve - Fifteen years ago when a web pages were just made from one image and sliced up certainly, but times have changed.

If your budget will run to the cost of Adobe products and you use it commercially then sure, buy Adobe products, the alternative is to become a criminal and steal the products. But of course be warned, the people who are capable of "cracking" software security are also capable of inserting their own code into the product to do ANYHING at all on your machine and your anti-virus/anti-spyware will let it happen because YOU have deliberately and knowingly installed the software.
