Easy Drawing Soft

    I am looking for a single free software to draw easy schematic pictures, such as those for setting up physics problems and so on. You'd be able to draw arrows, lines, a bit of text, easy geometrical forms and so.

    I have heard about XFig, but it is needed Linux or Unix I don't remember. I tried some time ago to install it from a web page somebody gave me just here, but I wasn't able.

    Do you have some suggestion?

    Please, if possible I want it to be running under WinXP.

    I've been looking for something similar. In the meantime, try the standard Paint drawing tool built into Windows, with a little imagination it can be a little more versatile than most people think it could be.

    Thanks everyone. I've downloaded Inkscape. If it doesn't fit to my need, I will try with some other you posted.
