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.

Well, I never stated it was a clone. I simply wrote it is pretty similar. Vala does come close to C#, but it does have some differences.
I don't really know what you're getting at with the whole runtime thing. Last time I checked, Mono has a lot of risk behind it whereas Python and others aren't based on .NET technology. Or am I missing something?

EDIT:
I also don't think it's the language at fault here. I thought it was all about the framework.
