[XaraXtreme-dev] Xara's feature

Completely agree!!!

SVG - is shit.

What is it's advantage if it could'nt handle other type of transparency except linear and circular?
Or maybe it could, but not yet? And what should be happen to force it to support these types of transparency?
SVG is so open standard, so open!
So open like XAR. Exactly.
Xar already have these transparencies and could handle other types if it will be necessary.
So I think - PS, AI, EPS, and now SVG are the same things. SVG its just new toy. It is new and everybody wants to play with it.
So funny to see Inkscape users. BTW inkscape is just a toy too. Funny but completelly useless if you want to draw something just a little too complex. And that Gaussian Blur feature was thunder joke after Xara's feather.

Maybe Im angry too. Angry to see how computer indystry invents troubles again and again. Anyway this is my 2 cents to this huge list of flood. Sorry for bad English.


P.S. And for those who like Inkscape, you could get good practice trying to reproduce attached Xara artwork. Just for fun.

P.P.S. And maybe Offtopic list should be created? Stop bother Charles!
