  • Story Type: News Story
If Inkscape were at the 1.0 release level, I could easily forget a reviewer's responsibility and gush about it like an adolescent in love.

Yet, even at its current early stage, Inkscape has already distinguished itself from the crowd. By focusing its development on the basic interface, objects and paths, and text objects, Inkscape already shows an awareness of interface and usability issues that makes it one of the most promising desktop free software projects of the last few years.
