    Have to agree with you about Illustrator, it is a toughy.
    Being a vector based program, it is the ideal graphic designer's software.
    People tell me it's a snap to learn so I keep playing around with it when I have some free time.
    I AM determined to get the hang of that program!

    Other then AI, go for Photoshop, Gimp (free) or any other graphics software that at the very least, supports layers.

    I use Paint Shop Pro, Logo Design Studio, PhotoFiltre, and Image Magick to name a few.

    I, for one, would welcome a gallery of mspaint made logos. Sounds like a great challenge.

    BTW, ehow has a tutorial on the topic:

    How to Create Logo Using Microsoft Paint | eHow.com

    I thought the warning was hysterical:

    "There are better ways to create a logo but this is something a beginner can use for creating simple logo."

    Fireworks and Corel Draw. AI and PS just far far too bloated and just confusing. Its a simple one/ two clicks in FW to add a shadow... about 10 for PS...
