Come on, you are smarter than that. Of course there is "us" and
"them". Using development versions causes cancer, brings 20 year of
unluck on your family and kills kittens by thousands. People wo use

I'm an 'average user' and I'd usually stick to stable releases of stuff like GIMP, but come on - 2.6 is two years old now with no single-window mode. Of course I'm using 2.7. I have no problem with the dodgy splash screen using GIMP at home because I'm not uptight, but thinking about it I might be a little bit uncomfortable installing it at work. ;-) I'd agree with those saying such splash screens should probably be avoided, even for development versions.
