Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Just like Eugenia yesterday, I also upgraded my laptop's Ubuntu Feisty installation to Gutsy a few days ago. The upgrade process went completely awry, though, so I was forced to do a fresh install. Not a bad thing, as it gave me the opportunity to take a look at Ubuntu's soon-to-be-released Gutsy Gibbon with GNOME 2.20

Can someone tell me a real use for an application like MS Paint? (Except for letting young kids toy around with it). MS Paint is the last thing I'd miss in an operating system (as long as I have more mature applications like gimp or inkscape)


Like I said. You don't use a sledgehammer to hammer in a 1.2mm by 3cm nail. GIMP is absolute overkill for very minor image editing needs - stuff like resizing, cropping, blurring out email addresses, and so on.

In fact, to this day, I haven't found nor a Linux GNOME, nor an OSX application similar to Pain.NET. A simple yet powerful image editor for those smaller tasks that do not need a Photoshop-grade application.
