Yeah, this logo would have been a perfect candidate to be done in Illustrator. Good job using PS.
Illustrator was actually the first application I loaded the image into, but after playing with live trace and trying out manual tools, I realized that I'd end up wasting the whole day trying out new stuff, and I had other things to do.
I'm pretty sure that Illustrator is a powerful application for drawing, but unfortunately its interface, standards and metrics are all rooted in the pre-press industry that I try to avoid with a long pole, so it might work out better if I find a vector drawing app that exists for the sole purpose of drawing vectors instead of graphic design.
A long while ago I used to work with 3D design applications, so I'd just draw my vectors there, and then export the CAD drawings, which are easily digestible as vector art. It was really fast because you already have all the tools to generate just about any shape you need.
