The point is that for me Inkscape is more usable and if there was an

rather than trying to justify Draw's shortcomings we need to work out
how to
prioritise improvements to Draw and learn from applications that do it

I use Draw only for simply diagrams, for complex stuff I use Inkscape
or (maybe, I'm starting the tests with it) karbon14.

The main shortcoming of Inkscape is for Mac users, where it requires the
X11 windowing system. It's workable, but awkward, and not widely understood
by mainstream users.

Think this has lost the plot :-) The argument was not necessarily to replace
Draw with Inkscape but to learn from it.
