Thank you so much. Could you please write your stories as a paragraph and include some photos so I can add them to the presentation for the SENA people? I'd really appreciate it. They could also be used for a success stories database later. Thanks in advance.

Then I believe you are familiar with this recent, but very cool, success
story: http://gould.cx/ted/blog/Inkscape_works_on_Cancer

I can tell about how us at Fedora[1]  are happy with Inkscape, along
with GIMP, as a primarily tool for doing our day to day work.
With Fedora 10 we got more into raster graphics, so GIMP was used more
than usual, but in Fedora 8 and Fedora 9 Inkscape was the most used tool
for distribution specific graphics[2] [3], from wallpapers to slashes to
website banners.

We use it also for website mock-ups[4], posters[5] [6], t-shirts[7],
CD/DVD  labels[8], stickers[9] [10] and more. Sometime we use other
applications in connection with Inkscape for finishing,like adding an
effect with GIMP or prepare for professional print with Scribus.

Of course, we use it a lot fo create icons [11].
