No one has to stick with 2.8 for cost reasons. But most people,
at least on Linux, will have to upgrade their OS to get all the
libraries needed to run the new GIMP. Historically, it can take
six months or longer after a release before most Linux users can
run the new GIMP version, and a few users (on "stable" releases)
may wait a lot longer than that.
