Ok, if you insist. I do some painting for entirely personal pleasure in my non-existing free time.
I try to do almost all of my work on a small laptop, so Krita's unscrollable toolbars force Krita's window to be taller than my screen which is quite annoying. Other tools (GIMP, Inkscape) have some sort of resizeable toolbars.
Oh, also don't forget the toolbars jumping around when one selects a different tool.
I tried to use a Wacom tablet, but quickly abandoned it. I like to switch between mouse and tablet quite often however Krita doesn't seem to like it. I got hit by bugs when I could paint on a locked layer or couldn't paint on an unlocked layer, or my brush was incorrect after the switch, etc. Sometimes cursor just disappears completely.
A lot of tools are buggy. For example, an ellipse tool leaves a trace of unerased pixels if I move it too much which is very distracting on a tablet.
Then there are color selectors - Krita has like 10^100 of different color spaces and 10^14 of color selectors (Triangle, simple, palette, digital mixer, advanced), but no color selector where I can quickly adjust HSB components, there's 'specific color selector' but only for RGB. I tend to remember exact color values and tweak them a bit when necessary.
Effect layers were quite buggy when I tested them.
