Try this: less file.wmf, that will give you some ideas. Then
I'd try Illustrator.

Other possible choices: KIllustrator, sketch, Metagra(ph|f) ( I
never remember which is).

Postscript is a vectorial drawing language. Coreldraw in 
the "dark-side" is the best.

In vectorial you never loose resolution, you can manipulate
better the image....

It's vectorial because you store "vectors" of lines instead
the pixels that comprise each line.
