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.

Heck, why are all GTK programs so ugly? That's what came to my mind when looking at the screenshots.

Entirely subjective. I think they look quite nice especially when the Clearlooks theme (the default these days) is used.

It's a matter of opinion I guess, but I find GTK+ to be high up on my own list of aesthetically pleasing interfaces. My favorites being OS X, then BeOS, I'd say GTK+ is third. Down at the bottom of my list are Windows XP and prior, KDE (yes, even 4.x), CDE, and the older GTK/Gnome 1.x interfaces.

Every new release of Gnome it seems GTK+ gets more visually pleasing, and I couldn't be happier. Linux Mint Helena looks great on my x86 machine.
