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.

I have Ubuntu running on another laptop and just installed Krita to determine how well it worked.

It took me longer to download / install (via apt-get) than it did to grab a pic, isolate an area, save that area as a new file, convert it to gray scale and save it again under a new name.

Since this is roughly 90% of what I use a graphics program for, I'm happy.

Good for you.

Finally someone injects some sanity into this discussion.
