Xara Xtreme for Linux is a powerful, general purpose graphics program for Unix platforms including Linux, FreeBSD and (in development) OS-X.

Formely known as Xara LX, it is based on Xara Xtreme for Windows, which is the fastest graphics program available, period.

"Could Xara Xtreme become the StarOffice/OpenOffice.org of the graphics world? We won’t be betting against it."

"With its amazing speed, small size, reasonable system requirements, moderate price and powerful feature set, it’s hard to go wrong with Xara Xtreme. Xara’s recent announcements to make Xtreme open source and to develop Mac and Linux version should only make this excellent product even better."
