Xfig (10 Oct 2003 at 19:14)
Oh, man, xfig is soooo bad. It's like drawing by holding a pen in my teeth. Isn't there anything better to use on linux? (I need to stick these in my \LaTeX document..)

Sodipodi looks reasonable, I'll try that out...

Sodipodi looks nice, but crashes on my Win2k machine when drawing a line. Maybe it will run better on my home Linux machine. Plus, it saves only SVG documents...

Just learn metapost. It's a lot of fun.

No way! Though I am thinking that I will have to make special fonts for my notation in this paper. But I want to use *as little Knuth software as possible*.
