With Krita, what's exciting is how fast it progresses. It has insanely
advanced features, but is still missing the basics in many ways. And now I'm
so used to Gimp that I'm not sure if it was just me, or actual, but I felt
the UI was very....restrictive.

The only thing I would add is the fact that the progress bars that seem to
move at wildly different speeds (move quickly, pause, move quickly, pause,
then suddenly the operation is done) make the speed feel...slow. showfoto
under KDE has a great progress bar, and it seems to judge how long something
will take very accurately. Photoshop has a good one...It makes it feel like
you can gauge how long something will take...

Still think that having a shortcut layout that mimics PS would be a great
feature. Just a shortcut list that's easily loadable like the Theme selector
in Preferences. Would make it so easy to get a bunch of people over...but
alas, talking about that got me banned from the list by the Dynamic Duo, so
I'll shut up about it.
