Which do you prefer and why?
I like Paint.net because it's simple to use, has a lot of good addons, and has a user friendly UI.
What about you?
Not that I'm an artist, but I have tried both, and I do like Paint.net better. GIMP is alright I guess, but it does have some issues with the locations of the little gadgets or whatever you call them. The brushes show up in a different window from the colors, or at least it did the last time I used it. I would need to see the most recent version to pass real judgement on it, but that is my opinion from my memory.

I tried Paint.net and just couldn't get into it, so I deleted it and stuck with GIMP. I'm fairly capable of using GIMP very well now, so I have very little to complain about it, aside from slow start-up times.
Paint.NET is so user friendly it's unreal. I really enjoy it. Really easy and quality for quick edits.

MS paint is horrible,
Paint.net has most of photoshops core features and those it doesn't can be added with addons.
I'm taking a gimp class, which makes more familiar with gimp. Though most of it is a repeat of what I know.

Paint.net is excellent for small projects and pixel art imo, while gimp is good for those things that paint.net can't do and you don't have photoshop. Gimp loads way too slowly for me, but paint.net is almost instant, therefore I'd have to go with paint.net.
Gimp is objectively more useful, but Paint.Net is easier to use. When I have installed Photoshop type skins on top of Gimp it tends to make the placement of icons more logical and the whole program easier to use and then I use it more then Paint.Net. Also, for advanced photo and graphic manipulation Paint.Net is not very useful at all. For those reasons I would have to say Gimp, even though Paint.Net is a better program for what it does.
I am so used to use Gimp and only heard of Paint.NET recently as like 2 years ago, I am not a graphic designer tough so I don't think Paint.NET would benefit me, I use Gimp merely as a free alternative to microsoft paint, use it to make some video games sprites/textures and other misc shit nothing advanced and so far Gimp has satisfied me, I never tried Paint.NET so I can't compare it to Gimp.
Paint.net, it's so friendly and good (except when you have to rotate or change the size of something).
It would be nice if microsoft changes MS paint with Paint.net.
A wild lurker appeared!
gimp is like a bad but more easier to master photoshop while paint.net is just an upgrade of ms paint
seriously though you should just jolly rodger photoshop before pirating dwindles into the ashes
