Under Windows and Linux GIMP works almost flawlessly and that is more
than 80% of PC or more in the world.

And you can always use Linux in dual boot or in a virtual machine on a
mac and those both methods cure definitely all that MacOSX problem, 
meanwhile waiting for the GTK3 definitive solution of course...

So the point is really "who cares about (some) OSX (users)"?
