    if you read the post, its meant for the EEEpc or whatever since it has such a small screen that the normal inkscape application wouldn't fit on the screen...so there is no reason to use this on regular ubuntu on a 1024x768 res screen...since inklite is just a stripped down version of inkscape

    if you read, it's also designed for novice, kids and casual stuff.

    it's like a cool svg version of m$ paint (comparing simplicity)

    would be awesome, svg and simplicity rocks.

    the smaller size would also make it great candidate to be included in a number of distros that don't include it already

    Wait, I read the link and it sounds like this isn't even being made yet.
    Or did I miss something?

    It's also meant for embedded devices (like the Neo Freerunner, maybe?)
    Definitely a good idea to make a stripped down version of Inkscape.

    There is already a lack of space on the CD.

    There is a desperate need for a program to replace Kidpix... this looks like a possible candidate in addition to Tuxpaint.

    Indeed but it would be good for a lightweight system CrunchBand, Lubuntu, Xubuntu etc. (whether it has a large screen or not), the full inkscape is much too heavy for me to consider using on my laptop.
