If only! Adobe Illustrator is the only thing that still tethers me to
Windows, and I use the GIMP wherever I can, but GIMP and Illustrator
have two completely different approaches to the creation of graphics.
If I start with a Gimped image, I still have to use an old version of
Streamline to prepare bitmaps for vector drawing when that is what is
needed. It is not easy, but it eventually works. I try out new
versions of SVG whenever I learn of them, but there are still many
aspects of vector drawing that SVG cannot produce, (and I leave out all
the color and blend refinements that I do not understand or need).
