Re:Should be Open sourced

I dont see why he doesnt release it under a open source license, this would allow quicker development. You could sell the documentation instead of the software and offer training services, by opening the code it would benefit from fast stable development as well as a larger user base. By not making it free software you are restricting your user base.

By the way the GIMP is a great tool, it serves me perfectly for web graphics. Most facilties in photoshop you dont even use anyway....
