Graphics, User Interfaces You may remember that back in November last year, I wrote about the lack of a decent Paint.NET-like application for Linux (or, more specifically, for Gtk+ distributions, since Qt has Krita). As it turns out, this compelled Novell employee Jonathan Pobst to code a Paint.NET clone in Gtk+ using Cairo. Version 0.1 is here, and it's remarkably advanced for something so young.

because i'm not going to install mono to run that program


This program does not use Mono IN ANY WAY - does it?

EDIT: Heh, it does. Didn't notice. I'm left wondering - for what?

It's written in C#, it just uses gtk# instead of winforms for the UI.

"You must be new here"?

(yeah, I know, bad target).

The fact that you see the words "Novell" and "Gtk+" strewn together should be enough of a hint.

Well, it's a clone of a .NET program, from which it re-uses some code. How would it *not* be using Mono?

So that he doesn't feel like he's trying to kill himself while coding the application, as is the case with C?
