    What I want is the Windows XP paint. Not the [removed by Mod] horrible "ribbon" interface that the Windows 7 provides. It's horrible and confusing. I want the Windows XP paint tool.

    GIMP is better than paint.net, too.

    Why is that funny? I'd prefer not to risk virus's & trojans thank you very much :D
    (Not to mention that pesky piracy damages thing)

    I was being sarcastic. :)
    Actually I think piracy of Photoshop has its benefits. How many graphic designers do you reckon there would be if Photoshop was hypothetically impossible to download? A lot less than there are now, I reckon. No-one ever got a job in design because they have 5 years experience with ****ing paint.net or whatever. Photoshop is what counts. It's pretty much the entire reason I have that skillset and now want to focus (probably) on web design/development as my main career option.

    Still too many b/c the Art Institute pumps out too many already. The market is over saturated, and killed the pay for Graphic Designers.

    If you want to pursue web design, you need to learn AJAX/JAVA/Javascript/PHP and some MySQL integration along with those, to recieve any kind of decent pay. Graphic Design alone, unless your a design god, won't get you any kind of real pay.

    Yup, web designers alone are rarely employed, you need to know your code, too. Luckily I'm doing web development at university. Also luckily all the web scripting languages aren't as difficult to learn as programming languages like java.

    PHP can be a PITA sometimes.

    First, sorry for my language, I'll be more careful from now on. Second, I want ms paint because I want to be able to quickly doodle something and save it and send it. My friend also wants this, and is part of the reason I asked. The reason I don't like the Win7 MS Paint is because of the ribbon interface. It's pointless, takes up resources, and is confusing. XP MS Paint is much simpler, which is what I need. Simple=fast.
