At the moment I’m doing some technical illustrations for a project and I needed a good vector graphics editor but I can’t really afford to shell out for Adobe Illustrator. Plus, it would be nice to have the drawings I do be in SVG format rather than locked up in some proprietary format. I N K S C A P E . Draw Freely appears to come from the same stock as Sodipodi but I like the interface better. They have a glitch in the Windows version of it at the moment that can cause a crash after you’ve used it a while but they froze the code so they could fix it. Even without the fix, it’s good software. I recommend it.
