To run with this analogy: the problem is when you *frequently* need
something that is more than nano provides. In the specific case of Gimp, I
don't think there's anything else that offers layers, curves, and a healing
brush. I use those things all the time in quick JPEG editing. (The layers
only temporarily, of course -- I'll be looking forward to adjustment layers
when that work is done.)

If we had a whole toolbox of photo editing tools at our disposal in Linux,
I'd be less sad.
