    There are already open source vector editors, like Inkscape, as well as image editors like Gimp. Going open source doesn't guarantee market share.

      Fair point. Though I would argue that user experience and/or feature set to some of those editors have constrained their adoption.

        For sure. My suspicion is that you need a strong product team with a clear vision to create a strong feature set, and it's pretty hard to do that with open source software.

        (it's also difficult compared to open-source software utilities for engineers because they're software engineers already! Not so many designers are software engineers)
