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.

Since Vala is basically a clone of C# (as you state), I don't think there's any reason to believe that C# is encumbered in ways that Vala would not be.

The only real difference is that Vala does not use a runtime. If you are going to argue against using a runtime, then you also discount apps written in Python or Java or Ruby or Perl.
