Shame the way Corel treated Xara though. Corel bought the exclusive marketing rights a few years ago, called it CorelXara and effectively buried it as it was so much better than CorelDraw.

I loved the way Xara mimicked some RISC OS aspects - you could open a window in Xara and still work on the window underneath, true scrollbars on windows showing percentage of window area, drag and drop, etc.
