    That’s weird. Talk about full circle. Isn’t Microsoft Paint a knock-off of MacPaint in the first place? So first there was MacPaint (on the Mac, of course), and then Microsoft Paint imitated that for Windows, and now Paintbrush imitates that for the Mac?

  2. @Todd: That’s nothing. I’ve actually received emails asking me to port Paintbrush to Windows. Now that’s full-circle.

    Call me cheap but it looks like PaintBrush costs five bucks. I think an MS Paint clone should be cheaper!
