Yes, we know many of these apps are not directly comparable.

Is it worth it to include Karbon and/ or Xara? I don't use them myself but wouldn't mind reading other user's impressions.

CinePaint

A fork of GIMP, but quite separate and distinct from GIMP in my opinion. Wouldn't vote for it myself as I haven't had use for its features yet.

GIMP is good, but Krita development seems to be moving at a fast pace and I prefer the interface.

I do most graphical work right from digiKam. But if I need something more powerful to edit photos I use Krita. I like its interface much more than the one from GIMP I used before.

What about mtpaint?
A very good, but limited I agree, choice for old boxes.
