Comment on Pixen

This is one of those programs, that reaches so far... but not yet far enough. It kind of stumbles just before the goal line.

Why? Because of its instability. I hate to say it, but it's true.

It crashes all the time, here and there. It might work ok'ish with small pictures and very few layers, but once you start adding layers, it goes down to a crawl (at best), or it simply just crashes without warning.

I'd like to humbly ask the good developer (Andy and his friends):

Please make this just a tad bit more stable and a little bit faster... You've nailed everything in terms of functionality (nothing is left to desire), but again, stability...

I would more than happily shell out a hefty bunch of dollars for this. It's that good.

In the meantime, I've been looking for a decent alternative for creating pixel art. But I still haven't found anything satisfying. (Suggestions are very welcome.)
