Krita does this, iirc.

Yeah... And it gives us no end of complaints, too. It seems that about
half of the people I talk to love it, the other half hates it. We have
had one usability study done at a Finnish university that concluded
that it's no big problem, but also no advantage at all.

For what it's worth I was trying to stay neutral - after all, the Krita
people I met at LGM a few years ago were really friendly :-) - but I
don't like this feature either, especially as the start-up dialogue was
larger than my laptop screen.

There might be ways, though, to improve GIMP's oob experience and I do
agree it's worth some thought. Starting with a blank image, like a Word
processor or Inkscape, would help, but that only works if switching to a
different image precision is easy and lossless, for example.

So I think the time is not quite yet for this line of thought.
