Birth of an Icon
Inkscape is a cool, open-source and free program for vector graphics drawing. It produces output in the SVG (scalable vector graphics) format, which is human-readable XML, and which can be used directly in future web pages. (Version 2 of Mozilla/Firefox, for example.) Inkscape is available for Linux, Windows, and Mac OS X.
I'm not a graphics pro by any means, but I was able to put this program icon together without much trouble. This is for our new project at rigserve.sourceforge.net.
