I don't know if any of you have ever seen Xara; for my money it's one  
of the best vector drawing programs of all time and I'm not  
influenced at all by the fact that I know the guys from way back -  
actually back to the BBC Micro days - so late eighties, early nineties.

Anyway, they've decided to open source the latest version, XaraXtreme  
and do Mac and Linux versions; more about that here: http:// 
www.xaraxtreme.org/. Vector graphics fans should watch with keen  
interest - it really is a superb program with a user interface that's  
still - for me at least - streets ahead of Illustrator.

I don't expect you to share my excitement but it's made my week :)
