    Some guy named Pavel Kanzelsberger has, over the past eight years, developed an image editor better than GiMP. And he did it by himself. And he wrote a framework to build it on. Also by himself. And it runs on a dozen operating systems.

    I may have to pay the $40 just to admire the man's work. And to avoid using GiMP.

    Now that's a program that I would never consider pirating.

    I downloaded the free (demo, with watermarks) version and installed it on my Kubuntu machine after I posted this. It actually makes sense! So much better than GiMP.

    If you want to try it, download the "generic Linux" version, don't bother with the Debian/Ubuntu package because it has dependency errors. The "generic Linux" one works fine.

    No. It's his baby and he charges money for it.

    I've been playing with the demo all day. It's still better than GiMP, and it's not even at version 1 yet -- though, he supposedly quit his job so he can code full-time.

    Nice AV of Tarja. Did you hear she quit the band? I dunno what to think of that.
