Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Just like Eugenia yesterday, I also upgraded my laptop's Ubuntu Feisty installation to Gutsy a few days ago. The upgrade process went completely awry, though, so I was forced to do a fresh install. Not a bad thing, as it gave me the opportunity to take a look at Ubuntu's soon-to-be-released Gutsy Gibbon with GNOME 2.20

Gimp is horrible, Inkscape way over the top as well. If I just want to rescale & crop a picture, with some effects, Showfoto does better. If I want to change a few more things, I often use Kolourpaint (the paint thing Thom believes doesn't exist on linux. typical.). I use Krita for the complex stuff, and only start Gimp if I need a good laugh.

Sigh. Reading is very difficult, isn't it? I said that I never *found* a decent one. I did not say: "it does not exist".

Reading is difficult, I know.

Sorry. Well, at least you can now be a happy happy guy - the app you where seeking for exists. Enjoy.

If you think that your bashing to GTK+ applications will makes us switch to Krita or KDE think again, it really sucks that a good project like KDE is infected with trolls like you.

Nah, you shouldn't. And I'm not really bashing, merely stating the obvious. Or would you say Gimp is the pinnacle of usability? Promoting it as a Photoshop alternative is a good way to scare ppl away from linux. Thom is right when he asks for an easy to use paint app. It took me some time to find one, but I did find it in Kolourpaint. And as I wrote, I occasionally use Krita.

Anyway, sorry, I do get carried away sometimes. I should not transfer real-life frustrations on G-apps...
