Paint sucks. The only thing it's good for is providing me something to copy-paste on to.

Wrong.

It's great for pixel work. It's minimal. You don't need gradients, anti-aliasing and whatnot if you're trying to create tiny graphics (say, for a LED display).

I haven't found a decent replacement yet and I'm using W(h)ine to run it on Linux and / or Mac OS... go figure.

You may also try Wally, "freeware texture editing program", for this kind of work.

I must agree that Paint sucks.. For a super simple experience try Small Paint.NET iconPaint.NET .
