I use Inkscape to convert or redraw rastered images as vector images. It's easy to use, works on GNU/Linux and is totally free. I love it!

I found it very buggy. Clicking Edit>Input Options just does nothing. Using my tablet pen eraser does not switch the active tool to eraser. Manually using the eraser draws red streaks instead of erasing which is considered a "medium level" importance.

This software was not intended to be used on a tablet originally. But I am sure this could be enhanced if you decide to join the team and open feature requests mentioning, in details, and with examples, how they can improve as a product.

Decent free vector graphics tool, but very slow on specific circumstances (ex. Pixel conversion) and breaks often. Auto save on abort always worked though, so use at your own risk.

I've used Illustrator, Affinity Designer, and several other vector graphics tools in the past, but I've recently switched to Inkscape, and the software is amazing. The user interface is really nice (especially in dark mode), and it has hundreds of tools. The only major downside is the lack of CMYK color space support, but there are several workarounds for this.

It's compatible with Adobe Acrobat - Edit Using - Open With, the feature to edit an image... A complicated app but looks good once trained on it.

Inkscape is not an alternative to Illustrator, but Illustrator is an alternative to Inkscape :) I think Inkscape is more powerful and independent than Illustrator...
