Paint Like program for linux

I'm relatively new to linux and I'm looking for something like MS Paint. I have Gimp, but it is way to complicated for what I want. Any Ideas?

xpaint - simple paint program for X
pinta - Simple drawing/painting program
kolourpaint4 - simple image editor and drawing application
gnome-paint - simple, easy to use paint program for GNOME
gpaint - GNU Paint - a small, easy to use paint program for GNOME
krita - pixel-based image manipulation program for the KDE Office Suite

Probably others as well, take your pick.
