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.

Wouldn't it be more useful to use Vala? It's pretty similar to C# so it would be easier for that crowd to adopt it.


Not really. The Vala syntax is based on C#, but it's not just a straightforward copy, such that C# code will compile unmodified. Nor does Vala provide the .NET APIs (or runtime), so anything using (e.g) .NET collections classes would need to be rewritten to use glib equivalents instead.
