Simple, native replacements for Microsoft Paint?

MS Paint is good but it lacks quality on some of its tools. I want to try its alternative software. Can you please give me a list of its alternatives.

I'm looking for simple software as MS Paint is. Please don't suggest me complicated software like Gimp and Photoshop. I have already tried Paint.NET, but it is too dependent on Microsoft .NET Framework, so it is very problematic to install in the first place.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

possible duplicate of Simple, native replacements for Microsoft Paint?. In addition .net is preinstalled on every copy of windows, and 3.5, which is the prerequisite for is on windows 7 by default (So .net should not be an issue). I do think this question is a bit of a shopping recommendation type question. – Journeyman Geek Jun 17 '12 at 8:43
@akira: I'm not looking for a free and open source editor. My criteria are different. – hkBattousai Jun 17 '12 at 8:57

@hkBattousai: "that question is closed". exactly. – akira Jun 17 '12 at 9:07
As is this. There's no reason two identical questions should be treated differently. Its a list, which dosen't work well with the Q&A format - the choices would be subjective and as such not be constructive. Personally i love software rec questions, but this is really the standards we have here, in the site, at this point of time. – Journeyman Geek Jun 17 '12 at 9:44

Well, if you're looking for simple... simple to install, simple to use...

There's always TUXPAINT

Actually has quite a nice set of features, including adding grass and various stamps which are pre-installed, with more available. TBH, I've enjoyed many hours playing with it, as have the budding artists in my household.
