30 dollars isn't worth much, if you don't want that, there's always photoshop...and it's a even better bargain.

seriously, some people put a lot of work in a program, and for the effort and service, they want to sell it at a good price instead of giving it away for free. they have the right to sell programs that they designed and programed themselves.

I'm not sure if this was directed at my post, but I'll write a response anyway.

True. But we consumers have a right not to buy them too. Maybe $30 isn't much, but if you spend $30 in one place, you'll have to cut $30 another place. I'd value guitar-equipment, homestudio-equipment and music before a paint-app. If I spend $30 on an app, it will take $30 longer before I can buy my Zoom g9.2tt.

If I needed the app, I'd buy it. But right now it would just be nice to have - but I can use Seashore and Gimpshop instead. And if I'd buy this, I'd buy Rapidweaver and Swiftpublisher first. So it wouldn't really just be $30 anymore..

I tried all the programs listed in this thread, and none come close to MS Paint. If somebody could basically lift everything off of MS Paint (all the little nuances) and put them into a program on Mac OSX, I'd pay $30 for it. MS Paint isn't even much like Paint.NET or any other drawing app on Windows.
