    What can I say? learning how to use it is a piece of cake. It's by far and away the fastest workflow graphic software I've ever come across. Sure, if you want to do huge maps with lots of fiddly bits, then nothing beats ps, but for working in vector/raster mix this just rocks (I'd say over and above Illustrator - which was so counter-intuitive I just hated it). There's a free download of an earlier version of it, all I can say, is give it a test drive.

    r.e. env maps, thats really cool. Once you have a few as a selection then theres not much point in having customizable ones. Its just that without one at all it never looks right. I have to say I am intrigued with it too. I may give it a whirl. I agree that whilst I am sure illustrator / inkscape are powerful I cant get on with them either. I should try this and Xara at the same time and go with one or the other.

    Great stuff here Ravs. Looks beautiful. On a side note, I reinstalled linux not too long ago and upgraded to Ubuntu 10.10. The other day I was browsing through software setting up some stuff and noticed Xara Xtreme was available, so I downloaded and installed it through the package manager. I have not had a chance to play with it yet, I plan to sometime soon to try to get a feel for it. Given that (to my understanding at least... which could be wrong) this is the same software which costs around $90 on Windows, this is a fairly good deal. From what I understand, the code has been Open Source since 2006 and it seems like the developers are getting around to a good stable release on linux.

    Wow, that's really cool, Joe. I wonder whether it's the up to date version or an older one? Seems a bit odd that they would release it for free on some platforms but not others.

    Well, I am sure it is based upon an older version, just not sure how much older it is. As for linux vs windows, since it's open source, it's really up to some community to compile the code and make any modifications needed to interact with the OS's GUI library. I assume linux support is there because enough people use linux and worked on the development aspect. IOW, Xara does not directly support the linux version in any way, that is the job of the open source project that builds the linux distro of it. Anywhooo... I hope to spend some time playing around with it over the next few weeks. Not sure at this point if I will spend enough time to convince me that it's better/easier than GIMP unless it just blows me away off the bat though.
