Why not? I have spoken to some photoshop users and they're very well
encouraged to use TheGimp. If a user don't really want to use a
software, he could find a disadvantage on every software he see.

I don't think they're sort of rude or I miss some point here. Why
they're sort of rude, because of some crappy tools which Linux doesn't
have? I would expect, that TheGimp will become more powerfull and usable
as he was in the past. Thats why the usability tests are for. At least
that TheGimp's userbase consists of developers, graphic geeks and normal
users. We're providing the Gimp manual for the most of the normal users,
