I had an appointment a couple of weeks ago with Adobe's international
sales manager as he went through Australia.
He was most interested to know what I was using and seemed to view open
source as serious competition:

http://inkscape.org/
http://scribus.net/canvas/Scribus
http://www.gimp.org/

just for a few examples.

An example of the sort of standard open source applications are putting
out these days, which might be a little more immediately accessible:

So, no.
Adobe are concerned.
Cheers!
