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.

Writing off anything that isn't a paradigm shift as just "the same stuff" is stupid. Everything in computing is just a slight variation on the same stuff. Where is anything in any OS that you cannot do in any other OS? We're not going to see a anything close to a paradigm shift in desktop computing until augmented reality takes off and even then most people will write it off as a pointless variation on what went before.

As long as something makes one thing I do slightly easier than it was before then that is more than good enough for me.
