Short description of error
All image and color space use linear color , but painting result is undesirability.

sRGB hinder precise calculation. Other softwares don't use sRGB for generate image.
Why blender must use sRGB ????

Event Timeline

Other painting software does work in sRGB space. There may be a bug with the particular settings you used, I didn't check yet. But if you just leave all the settings to the defaults then painting 8bit images should work like typical painting software, in sRGB space.

Sergey Sharybin (sergey) lowered the priority of this task from 90 to Normal.

The issue here seems to be display device set to None. In such configuration painting should skip any color space conversion.
