Graphics, User Interfaces Computer graphics have long been dominated by bitmapped images. However, the free software community has taken an innovative lead by adopting scalable graphic formats on its desktops. Inthis article I cover the history and rise of scalable graphics on the desktop from my angle - as a proponent of its use in the GNOME platform. This article mostly focuses on SVG's progress from a GNOME point of view, both because GNOME has progressed the furthest and because I am most knowledgable with GNOME's efforts. I will however mention major landmarks in other projects where appropriate.

I actually did try to proofread the article and I had someone else go over it too. But when you have gone trough something as many times as I did that article you 'go blind' on it after a while. Not being a native english speaker probably didn't help me either. Sorry that the spelling mistakes turned you off the article ;)
