I’m trying out Paint.NET 2.1a at work. (FYI: It was just updated on May 5th, 2005 to this version.) It looks very nice. I’ll install it on my personal desktop and laptop and use it over Gimp, simply because it looks more polished. I don’t work on graphics extensively, but it starts up so quickly! I need to do a little more than what MSPaint does, so if it’s quicker than Gimp, then I’m more likely to use it.
