Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu At the Ubuntu Developer Summit, which took place last week, it was announced that the next release of the Ubuntu Linux distribution, version 10.04, will no longer carry the GIMP in its default installation. This actually touches upon somethin I've been wanting to talk about, a problem that plagues both Linux and Mac OS X: Paint.NET is Windows-only.

Hmm... what about Krita ?

I think Krita from the Koffice Project has the chance being the "Paint.NET" under Linux and (later) OS X.
It has some good features and a good user interface.
Its not complete yet and still does not have all the features paint.net has but its quite good.

Krita is a KDE app and including it would pull quite a lot of dependencies that would take even more space in the live cd than The GIMP.

Krita brings in way, way less dependencies on a KDE desktop than Paint.NET would bring in on a GTK+ - based desktop.
