Graphics, User Interfaces "GIMP 2.8 has been talked about for more than a year and back in January there was a GIMP 2.8 release schedule by Martin Nordholts that had set the final release for the 27th of December. That date has now passed and, sadly, this major update to this leading open-source graphics program is still not close to being released."

If you want a simple Paint.NET-like tool for Linux, just use Pinta. Nobody's forcing you to use GIMP, you know ;) And Krita will probably not help you: it's a painting app now.


Pinta is NOT a paining app? Since when?

http://pinta-project.com/

Yep, it is a painting app. It has low aims (it aims to be simple), yet it ends up being simplistic.

It is still in early development.

As a painting application, pinta isn't a patch on Krita.

PS: Even worse, Pinta requires Mono.

I never said that. So the person you are arguing against is, in fact, yourself ;)

But now that you mention it, Pinta is in fact a general purpose graphics editor with very basic painting related feature set, clearly not a specialised tool such as MyPaint or Krita (and most lkely for a good reason).

So what is the point that you are trying to make? ;)

Here was your original post.

To me, it read like you first saying that "if you wanted a painting app use pinta" ... and then going on to say that "Krita would be no godd for you because it is only a painting app".

I thought ... WTF?

With your response now ... I have absolutely no idea what you actually intended to say. Regardless, you didn't manage to get your original message across, whatever it was.
