I think in this case, it is not the question what project is better. I'm not deep into this in order to judge this or this. I would say only that, okay, Xara don't want to give away it's intangible asset, the core engine. I think the problem in this Linux-Vector market is that there isn't much competition. If there would be more competition maybe Xara will release (or have to) release that code in order to keep the market share. (or they will hire a lot of stuff in order to work on this codebase) Now, I will come to the point! @DEV('s) How about to joint the Inkscape team in order to improve that application? This would be appreciated!!!!!!!!!!! I think to complain about Xara will bring any success! Please contribute! OSS should grow! ;-)
