GIMPhoto is similar and not dead. However, it's based on the same
idea. Providing alternate user interfaces for an entire program only
serves to confuse the user and make GIMP look like a Photoshop-clone,
which it is not.
So, you can possibly use GIMPhoto sometime in the future (author is
working on compiling it in Linux), just be aware the the GIMP
developers do not support it in anyway (except, as Joao says, in
supporting it's removal from existence). I'm actually a little
surprised that the first replier didn't say something like 'drop it,
we don't care about gimpshop cause it's bullshit, stop using a
f***ed-up hack of gimp if you want things to work in a non-f***ed-up
way.'. Joao was a little more polite.
