Alternative to Open .ai files

I had previously been using GIMP to open .ai files since I do not have adobe illustrator (or any of the other apps).  Now new downloads will not open in GIMP or Inkscape (but the old downloads still do).  Are there any alternatives that do not require me to purchase one of the apps?

Thanks!

There is nothing equal to Adobe Illustrator to open Ai files.

There are some programs out that claim that they open Ai files, but you really need to pay attention to the version. And you do not get the version of the Ai file as an info before acquiring the asset.

See here for details and programs (without guarantee): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adobe_Illustrator_Artwork
