on this blog before and gave it a thumbs up. It's a little
resource extensive so if you are looking for a free alternative. Then
Xara Xtreme has you covered!
has provided a
version of its designer free for Linux (and Linux only ) so if you
are looking to do some design on your Linux machine then lets get
going! So the Linux desktop doesn't lack a design software (according the the developer website).
The current stable
version is 0.7 made in 2014 and there is a less stable build. You can
download it from the software center. After installing, double click
to run the program.
The interface is
really simple, especially if you used Inkscape before. With many
tools similar here and there. You can see the path tool, pencil and
eraser. Typical stuff. You can also open and edit image files in
- Small and
- Simpler to use.
- Free and open source.
- Crashes often.
- Not as good as
- Not cross platform,
as it's Linux only.
This was a review of
Xara Xtreme ... I wouldn't compare it to Inkscape
as it's widely used and
more mature. But it's a good start to anyone who would like a lite
suit for design. Especially netbook users.
