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.

RE[2]: .NET

Well, you could copy&paste system-independent painting algorithms even if they were written in C++, so it is not much of an achievement. .NET and Java promised to take care of system-dependent stuff (like gui, networking, threads) too. The difference is that Java with SWT and Swing actually delivers on this promise.
