In other words, a cost-effective infrastructure play that cuts down on the grind-stuff… overhead, admin, drudgery… and boosts either productivity and/or allows creative to leverage what they can deliver. Allows the creative / designer to differentiate themselves based on metrics the clients care about; i.e., getting more with less, or at least more with the same.

Re: Business vs. Art… well, you need to pay the bills, especially in tough times. Art is what you do for other designers; business is what you do for your clients… and _their_ customers. 😉

Interesting times.
