"One thing that was really missing in Linux in the past was a good vector graphics editor."
Similarily to the article's author I too started using open-source tools when commencing my graduate studies (and converted completely to open-source by mid 2000). Even then, however, there was an extremely powerful vector graphics programme for linux known as xfig. IMHO xfig remains a superior tool to inkscape by a considerable margin at present (aside from .svg support).
