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.

KDE's Plasma desktop is fairly innovative. Not very different, the way you normally would use it, from any other desktop, but in the way it's designed so that the user can relatively easily mold it and adapt it into whatever s/he likes. Considering how radical it actually is, I think the fact that so many (though only a few) people complain so loudly about the "cashew" says a lot about its success: the small, cosmetic niggles irritate some people, but they don't even notice that they use something entirely different.
