  1. Congrats for the release!

    I love Krita. Actually, my kids love it so much. I've had a Wacom tablet for years and thanks to Krita my kids are expanding their artistic skills rapidly.
    I wish the people behind it all the best!

  2. Awesome news. This part caught my attention though:

    >Unlike the Windows and Steam store, we don’t ask for money for Krita in the store, since it’s the only way people can install Krita on those devices, but you can buy a supporter badge from within Krita to support development.

    I don't know about the Windows store because I don't use Windows, but doesn't the Steam store allow you to put up free tools? Godot Engine is available for free on Steam, IIRC.

    I wish more free software projects would do that. You can download Krita for free but if you want to support the project you can buy it from Steam or Windows Store.

  4. I'm not an artist myself but I follow David Revoy, who [0] uses Krita and other open-source software extensively for his Pepper & Carrot comic [1]. His blog [0] is full of posts about how he does his work using open-source tools.

    There are plenty of fantastic artists who use Krita but I find him interesting because of how dedicated he is to using open-source software for all his work.
