Personally, Charles Moir's feelings about CDRAW as a binary is valid.
Consider what has happened with Novell joining forces with Microsoft,
and Ubuntu joining with Linspire: we see a blend of proprietary and open
What does it gain us to be pure, pure OSS? The world needs more folks
working together to achieve a goal. Everyone has to make a living one
way or the other. The folks at Xara Ltd. that did most of the coding to
get Linux version to where it is deserve our thanks, even though they
were working on salary during the time.
There is nothing like Xara on Linux. I've worked with Inkscape off and
on and even with its latest update, Gaussian blur, and it is almost an
embarrassment to go from using Xara to Inkscape, because of the loss of
speed, quickness, and increase in key strokes and complexity.
So let's give Xara team a big thanks for what they have done so far, and
ask others who have the ability to help, to please help, in creating a
most worthy design software.
