The only "intuitive" interface is the nipple. After that, it's all learned.

Intuitive for you may mean closer to how Photoshop operate. However, people 
who start their graphics careers with GIMP will get used to it, and will find 
it more intuitive. Then, they'll have difficulty using Photoshop. (that's 
what happened to me and others I know). "Intuitivity" is not really 
"intuitivity" if it means Photoshop-like.
