I'm talking strictly about painting graphical elements. To me there's 
no comparison at all.

1) It's very light and responsive. More so than any other paint program 
I've used. Even the best of the mega-paint programs make me feel like 
they're carrying a heavy load around.

2) Overall intuitiveness.

3) I can paint in 32-bit color (not from a colorwheel, but you can 
still do it).

4) Maintains a palette of the last 12 sampled colors.

5) Free or percentage resizing.

6) Free or degree rotation.

7) Instant tinting.

There are lots more reasons, but I don't have time to make more 
comparisons for you right now.

All the best,
Ken N.
