GIMP is the most unintuitive program in history. I can say that from experience. I have used and necome proficient with the following 2D/photography programs, Deluxe Paint (2,3,4,5,5.5), Digipaint 2, Image FX, Art Department Professional, Photogenics (1,2 and 3), Brilliance 1 and 2, Atellier, Artrage, Photoshop (4, 5, 6, CS, CS2, CS3), Corel Draw (8, 9, 10, 11, 12) , Corel Paint (every partner version to Corel Draw), Corel Painter 8 and 9, Pixen, Director, Illustrator, Canon DPP. I am sure there are a few programs I have forgotten in that list over the decades.

I know a thing or two about art software, and I have probably forgotten more about art software than you have ever learned about art software. The GIMP sucks! The GIMP is why I, as an artist will not switch to Linux. It is the ONLY reason I cannot switch. It needs FORKS!
