I like it. You got skillz.

Have you played with any of the free alternatives to Illustrator?

Thanks MAS.

Yeah, I’ve played with Inkscape a bit. Tiring, mostly.

Am highly impressed by how well I remember the keyboard commands. It comes very naturally to me.

I’m stunned that the first version I owned (5.5) was about 15 years ago. I’m bummed it costs $600. My old versions (5.5, 6, 7, 8, and 9 if I remember right) are far too old to have upgrade paths.

Another one I found is called Creative DOCS.Net. Not sure about it. It may just be for Windows.

Definitely Windows only. Any idea if it runs on top of Mono?

I thought Mono was a kissing disease. 🙂

You’re thinking of Visual Studio. 😉
