Drawing in Linux is a pain to (most*) newbie users .

Sometimes, we just want to draw a simple circle in the picture and GIMP is found to be too complicated to be used.

If you are fine to be ms-slave, perhaps we can just run mspaint in Linux (Ubuntu 9.10) as well.

Running mspaint in Ubuntu 9.10 is not hard. All you need is:

  1. mspaint.exe (just google to get it)
  2. mfc42u.dll (just google to get it)
  3. and, wine (download-able with apt-get).

I have tested this with Ubuntu 9.10  and it can edit/save BMP images with no issue.
