Linux needs a top-tier commercial-standard graphics program. The Linux desktop has come on leaps and bounds in the last year or so but it still lacks a vector or general purpose graphics program that truly competes with the best programs for the Mac or Windows . We intend to change that.
Xara X has been a commercial shipping Windows product for 10 years (and non-Windows versions go back before that). It’s a modern, object orientated design that’s highly stable, and has gained hundreds of thousands of users. Our users and customers have produced artwork that is as impressive, if not more impressive, than that produced from any other vector graphics program.
Xara Xtreme on Linux will not only bring a leading-edge graphic tool to the platform, but with community assistance, has the potential to become the world’s most powerful, easiest-to-use and simply the world’s best graphics program. If we get it right this could bring the Linux desktop into whole sectors of the market that is has not been able to address before.
