Simple paint program

Does someone know a simple paint program for Linux? I do not need the features of GIMP, I only need the equivalent of MS Paint -- just a simple and fast program for basic image editing.

Does Krita qualify?

Krita is overkill. KolourPaint is what you want.

KDE comes with a program that looks to me quite like MS Paint. It's called KolourPaint:

Oops, late.

Thanks to everyone! Kolourpaint was just what I needed. It looks a bit TOO like MS Paint, but I asked for it ;)

If you don't mind using a non-KDE application, xpaint might be worth a try.
