Draw for Pros (advanced users). If you're not looking to create complex work you'll be just fine with the equivalent app in Open/LibreOffice. Conversely, if you'd want more then Documents app in OO/LO has to offer, you'd go for Scribus.
Inkscape had a long learning-curve for me, and although I made huge progress, still has many more hidden treasures for me. As I can see the art which others are able to produce with it. Ofcourse, being new at an application with many features always takes a while to fully comprehend. But with Inkscape it is fun to try to discover all of them. The big user-base provides me with ample help when needed. I'm very much looking forward to the upcoming big update. Respect to the developers. Did I forget to mention, Inkscape is 100% free-of-charge !
Fantastic app! Runs seamlessly on my Linux Mint KDE.
Great software! Would be nice if it supported higher retina screen resolutions on OSX.
As a long time user of vector graphics programs like AI and Macromedia's FreeHand... it is great to see an app which gives the expensive industry standards a real open source competitor! Inkscape is the real deal!
