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.

and .NET w/ Gtk# fulfills that promise too.

Paint.NET isn't even hindered from running on Linux because it uses Windows.Forms, it's hindered because Paint.NET calls out to win32 C/C++ libraries.

If the author had chosen to use Java and SWT, it would still have the same problems.
