    Inkscape Open Source Drawing Software

    I'm not sure if anyone is aware of this free open source drawing software. It comes in a few operating system flavours. My eyes lit up at the word FREE!

    Mac OS X
    OS X 10.5, Leopard — Universal .dmg (Please first upgrade X11.app to at least XQuartz v2.1.4.)
    OS X 10.4, Tiger — Universal .dmg
    OS X 10.3, Panther — PPC .dmg

    And of course the usual suspect also
    Windows — .exe installer, 7zip

    I only saw this today, and liked what I have seen so far. I love freeeeee stuff.

    Here's the link for all you fine folk.

    I've installed it and had a play around with some of it's tools. And, I can say it's fairly powerful and very easy to use. I'm still discovering what it has. Overall, I like it.

      Me too tried to download to my MS Vista.
      Everything seemed all right, but I got second thoughts after a numerous warning-flags poped up, stating that it was an unsafe/unknown distributor.

      Yes, I know....,these flags pop up many times when we download, and they are just ment as a safety precaution...., but anyway, I decided to wait a while, abort my download and see what kind of experience you guys does

      By the way; the screenshot you got there...., is that a car you drew, or is it an example image...?

        Ah, nope! It's just a sample image from some website showing what the program looks like.

        When I downloaded it I did it through SandBoxie (like an isolation box for anything downloaded). Then I scanned it for viruses, it came through totally clean.
        As I use XP Pro, I can't say too much about Vista and it's practises.

          Ok, thanks!
          Is it possible for you to post a screenshot of something you made yourself...?
          Take your time, get used to it and no rush!
