Karbon 2.0

Of all the application of KOffice 2.0, the one most ready is trully Karbon. It’s also the one for which the progress since 1.6 is trully the most visible, and in 2.0, karbon is mostly a path editor (which is no doubt the central feature of a vector graphics application), and it’s already working quiet well, definitively worth a try.

For a few monthes, I have already been using it, when I have to produce figures for my phd. And while I usually feel more confortable drawing with a pixel application (in other word Krita), I decided to make something more artistic with karbon, here is the result:

    Will be interested to see how it stacks up against inkscape (pretty much the only linux art program that didn’t make me wish for an Adobe product) – imho inkscape mainly lacks decent object/layer management, looks like karbon wins there and is prettier to boot 🙂 Whats going on with the left toolbar though? seems to be a bit short on tools!
