Well, I'm into some free software projects (vcs-related), but it usually
helped in the past to see something working before getting convinced
contributing to something ;)

I have nothing else but Mac at home, I will give the Linux binary a try
at work. See, all I was looking for was a decent replacement for
Inkscape (which has nice features, but a horrible UI). I was not looking
for contributing to yet another free software project or learning
wxWidgets (where all my Qt knowledge is useless) in first instance.

Buy one! They're cheap and powerful now ;)

Out of interest - how many other devs are committing stuff to the
project (and what are their main platforms)? I've read of a "shortage"
of Mac developers on the website, does that mean there are _no_ active
developers there?
