This is great because, while you could always open illustrator side by side, there is a difference in interface/keyboardShortcuts/ options placement. Which brings mental halt to everything in mind. That's very demotivating and bad for creativity.
Creativity Directly proportional to how easy it's to utilize it.
The great things for PS user would be...
Almost all tools needed to deal with vector graphics would be available in ps, such as (width Change tool, expand stroke, apply gradient to stroke, slice shapes with each other, have fidelity/smoothness of vector brush/pen/pencil, spray symbols, make more customized brushes( btw i think some of vector brush capabilities should be in normal ps brushes as well.)....
So in end there will be three programs 1) Ps 2) Ai 3) Ai+Ps<<<>>>>
