Demon Hunter got majorly nerfed in updates, in the PC version, long before this version was made. The TOC DHs were the best (Does a Patrick Stewart Quadruple take). Ok. Yeah, Trail of Cinders was top DH arsenal, back then, and owned like crazy. Blizzard stepped in to stop that quick.
In Softcore, it's hard to say who is better at all. Though Demon Hunter does have some great end-game spike damage. Oh boy do they. Just prepare to die more on the way there.
In Hardcore, WitchDoctor has it WAAAAAAAAAYYYYY easier.
You can take a WitchDoctor to Paragon 100 in Hardcore PC, good luck doing it with the Demon Hunter. They're too squishy, and have a lot of problems with survivability and a lack of a *cheat death* card like the WitchDoctor has. There are many many Champion or Elite encounters with which the WitchDoctor will walk away from and not the Demon Hunter.
DH is easily the challenge class in Hardcore.
