My opinion, the Draw is a good application because is very easy to use,
Inkscape is better because have more options to draw, but is to hard for the
end-user use.

The point is that for me Inkscape is more usable and if there was an
to replace Draw with it in LO/OOo I'd take that option. Clumsy
non-multi-tasking dialogues are just one of many issues. I guess if a
time supporter of OOo like me is saying this many others would too, so
rather than trying to justify Draw's shortcomings we need to work out
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.

Draw and Inkscape  are not equivalent. To draw freely, I prefer Inkscape
but in some cases I think Draw better to be integrated in an office suite

   - specific scale drawing (plans, technical drawing...)
   - automatic dimension lines
   - different export formats
   - multi-slide possibility
   - layers comportment (functional layer vs. position layer)
   - separated display and print layers functions

Why not incorporate the best features of both products in one application?
This artificial separation of functions has no logic to it. Why would it be
a disadvantage to do specific scale drawings in Inkscape? Why would
automated dimension lines not be good in Inkscape? etc

As we lost layers in OOo 1.0 impress module (used for multi-languages
presentation or different displayed and printed documents ), replacing
by another module should be damageable for LO usability.

No-one is saying do a straight replacement of Draw by Inkscape. The point
that Inkscape has some very good features that would make Draw better
(probably Draw has some features that would be of benefit to Inkscape but
are talking about making LO better not Inkscape). I see no reason why
improving Draw with some of Inkscapes
