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.

That is because QT/KDE developers already have C++ on their disposal.

GNOME developers were always against C++, wanting to do OOP in C, which although possible, makes you do by hand lots of stuff which other languages do automatically.

Their love for C# happened just after some of their programmers have discovered some of the productivity gains to use an higher level language.
