    Yes, but I do wish it had a *few* more features, like blur and such...

    Now, is that what they call a paint job?

    And that app-ears to be an app... so will the Paint program (desktop version) remain? Or will we be relying on our friend WinAero?

    And with 3D, is this another small step for mankind towards a Star Trek style replicator?
