Thank you for the perspective. It seems that the printing part of Gimp
is a second-class citizen that doesn't have the refinement of the rest
I have always seen Gimp as a Photoshop competitor, so I'm thinking what
if my mother-in-law (or any other non-expert computer user) were using
Gimp. Would she be able to print? Would she use it instead of buying
Photoshop? I would like that answer to be yes.
