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.

True.

Some other additional issues could be:

* The main development environment involves downloading a fair number of GTK/Gnome libraries.
* No Qt Creator for C# (afaik), and programming interfaces by hand is just dull.
* Lack of press.

I would think that C++ would be the dominating factor though. The difference between C# and C++ just doesn't seem as sharp as the difference in C# and C.

(PS - I like Qyoto and KDE#)
