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.

If you let them bully you out of using your preferred language, then the FUDsters win (they're just like terrorists - their goal is to terrorize you into using what they want instead of what YOU want). If they see that they get what they want, then what's to stop them from endlessly FUDing something else until we're left with nothing?

Don't let the FUDsters rob you of your freedom.

Use the language/framework that YOU want to use. Don't let them bully you into using something else.

(That goes for ANY language preference - whether it be Java, Python, Ruby, Perl, F#, D, Scheme, whatever).

Don't let anonymous cowards on the internet bully you.
