    One can only dream. Figma took 5 years and $18M to make the version they have now, which is not particularly impressive and doesn't exactly give me hopes they will take the design world by storm with this hugely impressive tool anytime soon.

    I'd say we're stuck with shitty software for now. XD could become good in say 2 years.

      4 years, not 5 ;)

      Look — if there's one thing I can agree with Adobe on, it's that building a quality design tool is hard work / takes a lot of time. The good news is that now we have a great foundation and we are shipping updates very quickly.

      I'm sorry to hear you're not impressed with Figma. What are you looking for?

        I don't know about Cristian, but I've never had any problems with Figma. Have worked in Sketch for 2 years and switched to Figma in one instant.

        The tool works great out of the box, solves problem of storing files on the computer and therefore saves space. Symbols are here. Prototyping is here, even though it's very basic but at least it works. The only thing with prototype that needs addressed is Figma Mirror support?

        Are you guys looking into third-party "plugin" support, something like Power-ups in Trello? Craft's features would be badass, specially JSON content import.

        Thanks for all the hard work on Figma, so far the best tool on the market.
