I'm going with "accidental troll."  Some people think anything that isn't what 
they expect is bad.  Personally, I'm pretty cool with GiMP's UI.  I know where 
just about everything is and I know where to find what I'm looking for.  I 
don't see anything wrong with it.  And after playing with the single window 
interface for a bit, I went back to multiple windows.  I like multiple 
windows... works great for multiple monitors or for making the most of smaller 

And if someone comes in and says "it should be more like..." I'm just going 
shake my head.  I don't know photoshop all that well.  When I tried to use it, 
it simply lacked the usability I have with GiMP.  Photoshop's UI, therefore, 
sucks.  How do you like them apples?  And seriously, what's with the way 
Photoshop does layers?  When I create a new layer, I want control over the 
size, shape, color and all that. Sorry... didn't mean to make this into a rant 
against Photoshop... but isn't "good" relative to expectations and familiarity?
