Yep. Even more, free options for photo editing are a little stronger on Windows, IMO. There is GIMP, of course on both, but Paint.NET is also quite nice for casual use. I also think it would be less intimidating to home/casual users than GIMP is.


Aren't GIMP and Paint.NET both raster graphics editors (commonly known as paint programs)?

The Linux direct equivalent to Paint.NET would be Pinta:

For those looking for a "simpler-than-GIMP-alternative", a better choice would be Krita:
http://krita.org/

But for actual photo editing and management, one would use digikam:

http://www.digikam.org/drupal/about?q=about/features
(specifically, for Image Editing, there is the ShowFoto part of digikam):

or perhaps Shotwell:
