Are there any numbers you can base this statement on? I don't think this assumption is correct. Not that it would matter much but I doubt there are more Win32 GIMP users than Linux GIMP users. I'd also like to get an idea of the number of MacOS X GIMP users.
FWIW I'm using GIMP 1.2 under OS X and suspect that there might be a few freaks who do so, too simply because it's easily to install if there's fink on the machine. On the other hand there're probably not to many professionals doing this because fink is too much Unixish for UI attracted persons and Photoshop is still the standard; and no, Mac professionals normally don't care much about prices as far as maximum productivity and creativity is concerned. I do realize that things are shifting a bit now that Macs start providing better bang for the buck. :)
BTW: In OSX gtk 2 has really sucky rendering performance compared to gtk 1. I haven't tried GIMP v2 as of yet but other applications' UIs like gnumeric and evolution are simply slow on my new PowerBook which is certainly not a weak performer. FWIW one can feel the performance difference between my old PowerBook under Linux and the new PowerBook under OS X with the same applications. This is quite a showstopper for GIMP v2.
Unfortunately I've no idea how to profile the X communication to possibly find the bottleneck. Any ideas?
