Acorn 5

I’ve known my friend Gus for a long time now and he’s always been an ace. Gus is the kind of fella that will tell you straight up if you’re being a dummy.

Gus is not a dummy.

He’s just released Acorn 5 and it’s really quite something. If you love to draw or design buy it. If you enjoy software — go buy it.

There’s an attitude to Acorn that is unique. It’s friendly and flippant while being extremely competent. Under the “Bézier Stuff” menu you’ll find incredibly well implemented and easy to approach tools for addressing what’s normally a fussy aspect of vector graphics. And the Shape Processor is a lot of fun too.

If there’s one thing about Acorn I cannot stand it’s that I didn’t write it.

Go buy Acorn 5.
