    No, the reason I, and I'm guessing others, don't like the multi window thing is that it's a true window. As in it takes up room at the bottom panel. There is not an icon in the OS X Dock for every palette open in Photoshop.
    If the only reason you think your software is better is because it's FOSS, you need to write better software

    I actually wanted to like the GIMP but when it happened that I had to work on 16-bit photos I just could not continue using it. So I looked around and tested Krita. I usually don't install software that was not made for GNOME (actually that's a bit annoying to have so many DEs around and programs made specifically with one DE in mind), but I had to. Now it does look similar to Paint.NET which I used on Windows before for simple editing but has more features, which Paint.NET is lacking.
    It also is all one window and you can dock the toolboxes or have them float. I didn't like the separation in the GIMP but got used to it; really not a big issue when keeping the toolbox always on top by default.

    I started Krita yesterday for the very first time and it does seem a bit slow. But it has 16-bit support, easy-to-use color management (felt it was difficult in Cinepaint) and all retouching features + filters I think are important.

    Anyone tried it?

    Well it seems that Krita has some problems when re-opening its own file format after saving a TIFF file....

    I vote "Yes" for Krita... i.e. if you need quickly add a text to a graphics (JPG/GIF/PNG/.../etc), you can use Krita easily... [so for such you do not need "heavy" GIMP...]
