yes, just like photoshop some years ago...wait a moment...this means that 
serious photo work started just some 5-10 years ago????

PS: jpeg photos are 8 bit only so...if you do "serious" work with jpeg photos
GIMP is just good enough. If you use an (not so) expensive digital camera 
with "raw" format you still can use it full capability using some 16 bit 
converters tools like ufraw, rawstudio, rawtherapee and you can even do 
some hdr photo with tools like qtpfsgui...
