Graphics, User Interfaces You may remember that back in November last year, I wrote about the lack of a decent Paint.NET-like application for Linux (or, more specifically, for Gtk+ distributions, since Qt has Krita). As it turns out, this compelled Novell employee Jonathan Pobst to code a Paint.NET clone in Gtk+ using Cairo. Version 0.1 is here, and it's remarkably advanced for something so young.

For me personally, it simply comes down to I have been a .Net developer on Windows for close to a decade now. I have no desire to learn a new language while I am already very proficient with C#.

There does not seem to be a large contingent of people falling over themselves to write brand new apps for Linux in C/C++ (as opposed to iPhone or something), so you may be stuck with apps written in languages where the willing programmers are.
