@Gina Where is this? I sympathise very much with your first three paragraphs, and I want a Paint-like!
@wizzwizz4 Stay tuned for my beautiful website. As soon as I figure out how to remove a banner and change some other css stuff, I'll word-vomit all our FOSS adventures into posts and share it here :)
@Gina Looking forward to reading it!
@Gina i am interested in what you have chosen to be your happy ending in this story.
@Gina Did you test KolourPaint? 😉
@Gina video of this talk is here:https://video.fosdem.org/2020/UB5.230/leadeross.mp4
@sunweaver Pinta is definitely a reasonable option for this kind of thing.
@Gina Anyway: Notepad, Paint, and WordPad to become optional features in Windows 10. 🤓
@Gina cant we just make an ms paint clone called LX paint?
It certainly feels that way. I was using DP religiously as a teenager and in all those years I never found a painting program where I could get the same results without fighting against the user interface all the time. Gimp is not the worst offender, but it is pretty exhausting too.
@Gina is Tux Paint a worthy alternative to MS Paint ?
