    It's free as Inkscape is which is very important so maintaining that quality is a must. (This excludes Adobe and other commercial alternatives). Less buggy than Inkscape and better UI. The UI is particularly better due to its dark theme, I'm not a fan of software that is bright and tend to code with a black background.

    Affinity is an established product with the possibility of growth backed by a company. While Inkscape is open-source software, updated by volunteers. For now, I'll stick with Affinity but I'd prefer to work on Inkscape if only it could make the same usability quality jump that Blender did with its 2.8 update.

    LibreOffice Draw is a very simple drawing suite. It may be sufficient for many, but not sufficient to be declared an alternative to InkScape.
