Acorn Draw Clone


http://www.minotaurz.com/compmuse/mu...s/acorn_ss.jpg

That was the program i spent most of primary school messing around on. Is there a modern windows/linux clone of it?

A google search yielded Oak Draw for Windows, which can supposedly load and save in Acorn Draw format. Hard to tell from the screenshot what Acorn Draw is... is it a vector drawing program? If so, you may want to check out Sodipodi for Linux.

It's an incredibly simple vector drawing program.

It's like ms paint, but vector.

Yeah, I'd definitely recommend Sodipodi then. There's also XFig, which is full-featured but sort of hard to use, and Figurine, based on XFig but supposedly easier to use (haven't tried it). Also Inkscape, a fork of Sodipodi which is fairly nice. There are probably lots of others - check out Sourceforge.

Sodipodi and all those have waaay more than 9 tools though

I just want a vector version of Xpaint - I like having a limited set to work with.

Kpaint is pretty basic. Only 9 tools or so.

Sorry bud, IANAGA (graphic artist ), so I am not sure of the difference, but I did find this link with a large selection of graphic (and vector...) apps:
