"Basically unusable due to X11 interface."

March 17, 2011  |  By ThomasHarte

 |  Version: Inkscape 0.48.1

Pros

Lots of functionality, good support for SVG files.

Cons

Requires X11, causing performance to be about what you remember from your 486, and even then doesn't even display very well. And forget ever being able to find your files in its little, invented open file dialogue.

Summary

Clearly CorelDraw inspired, packing in lots of functionality, but just different enough to be confusing (to the authors: look up proactive inhibition) and the interface makes most of the functionality a serious chore to use. Expect to accumulate mental lists of changes you need to make to your documents, then put them off for weeks while you find excuses not to have to launch this piece of software.
