If you are running Mac OS X or Microsoft Windows, you have access to many different animation applications, ranging from Adobe Flash to Anime Studio. That is not so for Linux. While many think of animation in Linux as a lost cause, there are alternatives. The relatively new KToon calls itself "the open source animation revolution." KToon has a small learning curve and an intuitive interface, making it an excellent choice for simple animation within Linux.

Hahaha! I wanna try this out, but it's not in portage yet and I'm too lazy to download the source and install it myself.

Yes. But it would take a ton of work. They have a live cd you can download and stick in your drive, removing the need to install linux.
