I'm in the midst of creating a local Linux Users Group and I'm cobbling together a quick logo using a Creative Commons photograph, GIMP for making the image properly black and white, and Inkscape for setting the type (FreeSans) and bringing all the elements together.
Every time I use Inkscape it is a joy and a pleasure. In terms of usability and interface, it is so much nicer than Adobe Illustrator (and I used Illustrator every day for 10 years!). It is also so much cheaper. Like, Free. And it's available for Windows.
One thing I have noticed in the latest version 0.47 is that in the Object Properties dialog box, there is an Interactivity drop-down tab, with behaviours such as onclick, onmouseover, onmouseout etc. This is part of the SVG 1.1 W3C recommendation (that's Scalable Vector Graphics). However, this is the first time I've seen it displayed so obviously in the interface (though my eyesight isn't what it was and it may have been tucked away there for years ;)
It would be a good thing to see browser-wide support for SVG and reduce the reliance on bitmap images.
