Linux Dell has posted a page extolling the virtues of Linux (Ubuntu in particular), with a quick explanation of what Linux is and how it compares against Windows. Of course, the page links off to Dell's various computers that ship with Linux pre-installed.

Aren't GIMP and Paint.NET both raster graphics editors (commonly known as paint programs)?

The Linux direct equivalent to Paint.NET would be Pinta:

The port is still active and stored here, if you want to try it out :

Paint.NET is a Windows-only program.

Pinta is a clone of Paint.NET written by Novell to run under Mono/Gtk# on GNOME, OSX or Windows desktops.
