>* small screens: Krita is meant to be a professional tool for professional painters. That means we optimize for big screens. The minimum resolution to use Krita is 1024x768, and Krita does fit in there.
Well, it doesn't fit on Ubuntu 11.10 by default (my notebook is 1366x768). Not a big deal, but annoying.
>But the artistic color selector offers HSY, HSI, HSL and HSV modes, though, and if that doesn't satisfy you, it's always possible to file a wish in bugs.kde.org -- that helps us keep track of users' requirements.
HSV is fine (it's just another name for HSB). But I can't find a way to quickly adjust numeric values of components.
>* buggy effect layers: it's possible, of course, that there are problems there. To fix any problems of which we might be unaware, we need users to report bugs. And note that I've always said in public that I'm pretty easy-going about bug reports. People can mail me with a problem, ping me on irc or enter a bug in bugzilla themselves, that's all fine with me.
The problem is, most users just despair and either work around bugs or just switch to another tool. Especially since a typical release cycle of most Linux software ensures that the bugfix would arrive only in 6-12 months via normal repositories.
Additionally, I personally lack energy to follow through on bugreports. Especially in KDE/GNOME software, since they often end either in flamewars or forgotten. For example, alecs1 had opened a bug about accelerators in KDE that I've mentioned: https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=286375 with the expected RESOLVED:WONTFIX resolution.
