I have a recent laptop with Windows 7, 64 bit and 8GB of RAM.
If I use any kind of effects on inkscape I can forget using inkscape for
the day because the speed is so slow it takes a day for any movement to
appear on the screen.
Again trying to export to bitmap is impossible.
If I don't use any effects then the speed is reasonable.
I like what Inkscape is intended to do but does anyone know of a similar
open source program that will work on Windows 7??
