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.

I downloaded the .deb package for Ubuntu (you don't need to use alien), and it works well. It is surprisingly good for a brand new application.

Also, I like the name. It's simple, and sounds cool, unlike Paint.NET. Also, it means "paints" or "paint" (as a command) in Spanish.
