The latest Linux Journal sure doesn't have much good to say about GIMP
(Deep Images). Talks about it being a dinosaur and being left behind by
the likes of Cinepaint, Krita and Pixel. Sure hope there isn't a GIMP
2.6 but rather it moves to GIMP 3.0 based on GEGL with a UI revamp.
I kind of like the GIMP but I do agree with some of the things said
about it in the article.
