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.

Sometimes, the present paradigm works well enough. Open Source projects certainly do innovate, I dare say as much as Windows or OS X (tho I expect some will disagree). It's just that, sometimes, every now and then, the tools you already have right now are the best solutions for the problems you want to solve.
