Searching for a vector drawing program with tablet support.


I intend to buy myself a Volito 2 tablet rather soon, if only I could find a good drawing program first. What I'm looking for is:

*Simplicity- No need for advanced tools, just pen, ereaser and color picker preferably.
*Support for tablet- GIMP can do that, but it has too much unneeded stuff. Most of all, I'm looking for support for stylus pressure.
*Should be able to save to png or svg fomat

I haven't got to try windows programs yet but I suspect ArtRage is the best example of what I need, if it really is as lightweight as it seems. Also, I'm looking at Sodipodi, Inkscape and Xara Xtreme on Linux but none of these seem to support tablets' features.

Any ideas?

Does it support tablet features, i.e. pen pressure?
