Re:Using Inkscape instead of Xara is not a solutio

Posted by: Nathan Willis on February 28, 2007 06:05 AM
"Slow enough" and "fast enough" are personal value judgments, not critical arguments, but however you feel about the speed of the applications, it is quite incorrect to say that Inkscape is "limited to the functions within the SVG format." Inkscape expands on SVG, which is a powerful part of the design of SVG itself -- as XML, it's extensible, and not just Inkscape but any other vector editor can create its own namespace with which to extend SVG functionality. And as valid SVG, it will still render correctly in more limited applications that don't understand the extended features.
