Gimp is a very good software, but it could be better: It crashes constantly, and is missing some features.
Also looks to be abandoned, they are promising the version 3.0 for years now.
And even with it flaws its the best alternative for Adobe Photoshop.
Now imagine if it had a organization like Mozilla or Canonical to give a better support and updates.
It could be easily the best Image Manipulating Program.

You don't have to imagine. You can pay any software development company for hire and they will support you for any feature that you pay for.
Krita 2.9 is actually pretty decent Photoshop alternative, since it finally has RAW & HDR support and new transformation/warp stuff. Plus they promise Photoshop-style layer effects in the future releases.
oy vey! ids like anodda gaynocide! he invented the naziscript and literally worse than hitler.
>It crashes constantly
Could not reproduce. I can't even remember the last time it crashed for me.
>missing some features
Yes. I would particularly like to see adjustment layers implemented, along with a "heal" tool that doesn't suck.

They keep saying their new graphics library will solve these things. I guess they're busy writing UIs for these features in C?
Last time I tried out GIMP for Windows, it ran insanely slow and capped a single core completely when I dragged a high-rate input device's cursor (either my pen tablet or a maxed gaming mouse) across the window. Googling lead to a discussion on the UI re-initializing its graphics context on every ruler redraw and the expensive implications of this on certain platforms. I don't think they figured out what should own the pointer yet.
