Sorry that I haven't been involved in this discussion to this point,
but Draw has the major advantage of a native interface on Mac OS X,
which Dia and Inkscape do not (I think both require X11, though I
haven't checked lately).

I do not want to ignore advantages of Inkscape and Dia, but a simple
advantage of Draw is that it is well integrated with the rest of our
software. So as far as I can do what I want, I am more then happy with
it ;-)


I installed Inkscape on my distro and gave myself a refresher look and compared it the Draw. From a teachers perspective at the elementary level, I would say that the Draw would win out just for the mere fact that in the realm of the LibO suite, the look and feel just fit. I think that most students/kids would gravitate to Draw.

I am not too sure about the advantages to bitmap and vector formats anymore as the advantages seem to have blurred over the years. Are there still any clear advantages?

BTW ... I usually use the Gimp myself and have my students install it at home as well. The do manage to use it quite well. This however, with a helping hand from myself to soften up the learning curve.
