Review: Pixel image editor

This is a good application. I use gimp all the time on Linux and rather frankly it does not quite cut it. Close but no cigar though 2.4 definately had some improvements. Running photoshop under wine is good too but I'd preffer something thats more native and slightly better supported. Also stop whining about this not being opensource. The guy spent 10 years developing this, there is no reason why he could not sell his work. A lot of folks using open source seems to be suffering from something called "sense of entitlement", a syndrome of gimme now, gimme more, gimme for free. Majority of such folks have never contributed, on regular or even semi-regular basis to any such project. Those who have contributed know better. Most of them do not get paid to write open sourced code and have families and lives they need to take care off. So please unless you have contributed to open source projects for significant amounts of time, keep your yups SHUT!!!
